Thurman Cancels Visit

Gavin Thurman canceled his scheduled visit to Iowa for this coming weekend. The 2012 forward from Wichita talked to HI.com about rescheduling his Hawkeye trip and where else he might go.

Gavin Thurman has canceled his scheduled recruiting visit this for weekend to Iowa City. The 2012 forward from Wichita has not rescheduled a trip to see the Hawkeyes.

"I'm definitely still interested in Iowa," Thurman said. "I'm just not sure when I'll go up there. It might not be until my second semester."

Thurman said his second semester starts after the early signing period in November. He canceled this week's scheduled visit to Iowa because he said it conflicted with school.

"We're just getting started and that's the most important thing right now," Thurman said.

Thurman is scheduled to visit Colorado State next weekend. He said he "might" make that trip to the Mountain West school.

Wichita State and Missouri State are in line for upcoming Thurman visits, he said.

"I'm going to try to get to those (in September)," he said. "I might take a week off in between."

Thurman told me recently, and for the first time, that he is considering waiting until the late signing period in April.

"If I don't find the school I want in the early period, I don't mind waiting," he said.

Thurman said that Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery understood his reasoning for canceling this weekend's visit to Iowa City.

"He seemed cool with it," Thurman said. "He said we can just talk down the road and see if we can work something out."

Scout.com ranks the 6-foot-6, 185-pound Thurman as a two-star recruit on its five-star scale. He reports scholarship offers from Iowa, Colorado State and Wichita State and interest from Oklahoma State and Missouri State,.
