Name: John Wall
Hometown: Raleigh, North Carolina
High School: Word of God Christian Academy
Position: Point Guard
Notes: Raleigh (NC) Word of God point guard John Wall showcased his skills this past weekend in the 2008 Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions as he led D-One Sports to the quarterfinals.
Averaging over 24 points per game, Wall's ability to score baskets in a variety of ways and create easy shots for his teammates was a major reason why his team recorded a 3-2 record.
Rated the No. 3 player in the 2009 class and the nation's best point guard by Scout.com, Wall has dozens of scholarship offers and is a coveted recruit.
He is considering offers from NC State, Miami, Memphis, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Kentucky, and Oregon among others but remains open.
"I don't have a top five yet," stated Wall. "I'm trying to narrow my schools down, but like I said yesterday, there are schools that have offered me that I'm interested in and I have other schools interested.
"But [I'm looking at] Kansas, N.C. State, Virginia, Memphis, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State... schools like that. I still have interest in everybody."
Wall's summer will be extremely busy, as he will continue running the show for D-One Sports. Also, later this month he'll attend the NBA Top 100 Camp and Nike's Steve Nash skills camp for point guards. It is still unknown whether he will attend the LeBron James Camp or Reebok's All-American Camp.
As for his recruitment, expect Wall to honor the process and evaluate all of his options.
"I think before school basketball is done, I should have a list down, because that will give me time to sit for a month and put down my schools and see what I really like and just take a couple visits and see how the campus is," said Wall. "Because, you can't really pick a school if you don't see how it looks.
If a school pops up and it's the best school for me and that's what I would like, then I'm going to make the decision then, but if not, I'm not in a rush.
