Which School Will Gain Kenny Gaines?

The backcourt combination of Whitefield Academy's (GA) Kenny Gaines and North Clayton's (GA) Marcus Hunt have led the way for the Georgia Stars as they enter the semi-finals of the EYBL Peach Jam in North Augusta, South Carolina. Gaines is drawing attention from schools around the county and will soon be making some decisions on the schools recruiting him."

Two of the recent offers for Kenny Gaines have come from Marshall and Miami. "I haven't taken any visits recently but I do plan on narrowing my list at the end of the month or mid August and then I'll take my visits."

Gaines is looking to pare the list down to five schools and then he'll take his five visits. "Schools come and go so I'm not ready to name any schools yet." Some of the schools showing Gaines attention include Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, and South Carolina. "I hear a lot from Georgia Tech but everybody is in the running and I don't have any favorites.

Georgia Tech's new staff entered his recruitment later than the other schools but he feels that they have done a good job in catching up in his recruitment. "Coach (Brian) Gregory has done a good job and he's seen me play." Gaines was told that he wouldn't be offered until Gregory saw him play that offer did eventually come."I appreciate his honesty as a coach."

One of the things that Gaines will be looking for in selecting a school, is a good business program. "I also want to have a good feel for the coaches."

When the time comes to make that decision, Kenny will be looking to his high school coach (Tyrone Johnson) and his mom for advice.
