Wall Visits UNC

John Wall doesn't want to leave a stone unturned. The talented 2009 prospect is still a long ways from a decision, but he's started taking unofficial visits. His most recent trip was this past Saturday to Chapel Hill

"It was a good visit," Wall said. "I got to watch them a pretty good football game and Carolina came up with a big win.

"I spoke to Coach [Roy] Williams when I first got there," he continued. "He said they were going to recruit me pretty hard, they just haven't offered me yet. But he said they were going to recruit me real hard."

Since watching Wall at the RBK Summer Championships in Las Vegas, the Tar Heel coaching staff has kept in close contact with the Raleigh (N.C.) Word of God standout.

"They've been in the picture a little bit," Wall said. "After Vegas they've been in it. They came and watched me play and said they are interested. Now [Roy Williams] is telling me that he's even more interested."

With his unofficial visit to North Carolina complete, Wall is in the process of setting up a few more visits, including a return trip to Kentucky for their midnight madness festivities.

"The 12th of October I'm supposed to go up to Kentucky for a visit," Wall said. "Then on the 28th I'm supposed to go to Oklahoma State and then the weekend after that I'm supposed to go to Ohio State, but we aren't sure about that one right now."

Despite all of the early visits, Wall doesn't plan to make a decision any time soon. He's taking these visits, so he'll be prepared when it's time to cut his list of schools.

"I'm not going to make an early decision. I just want to go to all of the schools and see how they are so I can narrow it down later on. I don't want to eliminate a school if it's a school that I wanted to see and never got to see it."

Being from Raleigh, N.C., Wall has plenty of options to play in-state, however he made it clear that distance won't factor into his decision.

"It really doesn't matter. I'm just looking for the school that is best for me whether it's out of state or in state. Whatever fits me best is where I'm going to go."

At this point Wall, who is ranked the No. 2 point guard in the class of 2009 by Scout.com, has picked up scholarship offers from Indiana, Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina State and Miami.
