However, that could all change if McCauley takes an official trip to N.C. State for the game against North Carolina on Feb. 29.
The 6-8, 225-pound Yough High (Pa.) junior, who is also considering Villanova among his top four schools, will begin the postseason tonight after capping off the regular season with a 49-point performance in front of Maryland assistant Dave Dickerson last Monday night.
McCauley ended up one point shy of tying his career-high in the overtime victory.
The Terps have always been a dream school of sorts for McCauley, so he was enamored when he got the chance to take an unofficial visit to College Park for the game against N.C. State.
McCauley also took in Sunday's Pittsburgh victory against UConn and is hoping to head to N.C. State later this month for the Wolfpack's game against the Tar Heels.
``Those are my top three – Pittsburgh, N.C. State and Maryland - even though Maryland hasn't offered yet," McCauley added. "I'm hoping they will soon, though."
McCauley will probably have to show the Terps staff in the spring and summer that he can more than hold his own against some of the elite players in the junior class when he plays with the Pittsburgh Jots.
``I want to see how Maryland feels about me after they watch me a little more in AAU," McCauley said. "So I'll probably hold off making a decision until then and until I get a chance to see N.C. State and maybe Villanova."
``I'm really excited about this season and how well we've played," he added. "High school's great, but AAU is where it all happens."
