Summer breakout star Wabissa Bede has narrowed his list of schools to five, he tells Scout.
Bede broke down his five remaining schools:
Butler: "Coach [Chris] Holtmann was recruiting me a lot this summer I would see his face at almost every game. He said he needs a point guard and he thinks I can be their starting point guard if I go there. Assistant coach Terry Johnson was at every game this summer too and was recruiting me since September."
LaSalle: "Probably the hardest school recruiting me because they have been texting and calling me for almost two years now and Coach [John Giannini] and Coach [Sean] Neal are my guys."
Virginia Tech: "I love coach [Buzz] William. [He] reminds me of Vin. He's tough with a soft heart. He believes in me a lot and I can play at that level and produce there. Also they've been recruiting me a lot this summer."
UMass: "They are the hometown team and been recruiting me a lot for two years . Coach [Derek] Kellog is a good guy and a great coach and I love their style of play. It's very similar to Rivals."
Minnesota: "Coach [Richard] Pitino is a great guy and also feels like I can produce at that level. He tells me I will play a lot there too and he was almost at every game this summer and coach [Nate] Pomeday was at every game this summer too."
At this point, Bede has set one official and an in-home visit. Bede will see Butler the weekend of August 27th, while Virginia Tech will conduct an in-home with him on September 11th.
"I'm planning on visiting VT and Minnesota in the September too," he said.
With his list down to a working number and visits being set up, Bede, who will be ranked when Scout updates the post-July top 100, is on track to make a college choice before the early signing period in November.
"Early," he responded when asked when he will decide. "I'm trying to represent my team in lay up lines."
