For now, the fire that flamed the message boards here on the Kentucky Sports Report have simmered down quite a bit since it was first published that the Wildcats were courting Tyrone. But Nash continues to express interest in Kentucky.
"I had a great time on that visit," Nash said. "They have a great coach and a great program. I just needed some more time in seeing other schools too."
Nash has done so. He visited Notre Dame this past weekend. Nash, a 6-foot-7 forward who is now competing for Northfield Mount Hermon in Massachusetts, arrived back from the South Bend, Indiana campus this afternoon. "It went well," he said. "I hope I wasn't a jinx to the football team (Notre Dame got crushed by Michigan on Saturday). But I really liked meeting and talking to the players and the coaches. The campus is beautiful. You can see what a great atmosphere it is there. I am seriously considering them. It was a good chance to compare the visit to Kentucky."
Tyrone, who helped Lawrence-Woodmere Academy to the States last season, has had some in school visitors. "St. John's was up here with coach Norm Roberts," he said. "I had a chance to speak to him and it went well."
Nash said he plans on setting up an official visit to St. John's soon. Tyrone also said he had an assistant coach from Rutgers come up for an in school visit. "Northwestern also came," he said. "I am also interested in Florida. I hope to take four or five visits before I decide."
Nash said Stanford is also high on his list and he could end up taking an official visit there. When might he decide? "Hopefully in the Fall," he said. "I would like to and plan on doing it then after I take some more visits."
For now, Nash is working the weights in an effort to make himself stronger. It was one of the reasons why he felt he needed another year to work on the prep level. Tyrone said he hopes to add about 10 more pounds of muscle.
He also continues to express interest in Kentucky. He realizes it might not be that way in a few weeks. "Schools need to get players," he said. "I understand that. But I do like Kentucky."
