Sebastian Telfair Talks with ITV

Sebastian Telfair is without question one of the top prospects in the nation. He's long been rumored a Louisville lean and but there's been much speculation recently that he's thinking of jumping straight to the NBA after high school.

Following his Thursday night performance against 6'7 Shaun Livingston, ITV put the question to Sebastian...How will you determine whether to attend college or pursue the NBA.

"I'm gonna wait....keep working out, work on my body....[and] my game..keep having fun and wherever God says I'm supposed to be that's the path I'm going to take," Telfair told ITV.

Louisville has long been rumored the leader for Telfair's services and Coach Pitino and Coach Willard have been prominent figures for each of Telfair's last four games at camp.

Thursday, Pitino, his son Richard, and nieces and nephews along with Coach Willard were the most prominent school watching both of Telfair's games, standing directly behind the basket.  Following the night session game, Telfair had nothing but positives to say about Louisville and it's world class head coach.

"Coach P is a great coach..well known coach..[He] coaches a high tempo game, running like I like to play.  He's got a great program going on at Louisville, a lot of good things over there," Telfair said.

While Telfair says he's wide open at this point, he does plan to take some official visits in the fall.

"Yes I am," Telfair responded about taking visits in the fall.  Asked which schools he would visit, Telfair responded, "I'm not for sure."

When asked by ITV if he planned to commit before or sign during the early signing period in November, Telfair responded, "I'm not for sure...I have no idea."

ITV asked how he would know when the time would be right to pull the trigger and make a college decision.

"When I find a school and everything is a good situation for me then we'll see what happens," Telfair explained.

Telfair will base his decision on several factors, including the coach and style of play.

"[I'm looking for] a good coach, my style of play, nice city..[a] college where there's a lot of fans...things like that," Telfair said.  "And going somewhere I'll be seen on TV."
