Wall Takes in Tar Heel Game

North Carolina had four of the state's top prospects on hand Sunday evening for the Tar Heels' home opener. The highest rated prospect of the bunch was John Wall and the 6-foot-3, 170-pound guard gave the trip high marks.

"[The visit] went good," Wall said. "It was a good and exciting game that I went and watched."

This was Wall's second trip to North Carolina. Last time he was in Chapel Hill he took in a North Carolina football game. This time around he got to see Roy Williams' squad in action.

"I got to watch the game and I talked to Ty Lawson," Wall said. "After the game I went back [to the locker room] and talked to some of the players and that was mainly it. I didn't get to talk to [Coach Williams] because he was busy with a press conference."

Wall, who has scholarship offers from Kentucky, Memphis, Miami, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Indiana, Kansas and North Carolina State, said the Tar Heels did not make an offer during the unofficial visit.

"[North Carolina is] recruiting me the same way as everyone else has so far," Wall said. "I got to go and see them play a good game in person, so that was just an overall good time."

The No. 2 ranked point guard in the class of 2009 is still developing his list. Before he cuts his list down, Wall wants to take visits to Oklahoma State and Oregon.

But are there any early favorites?

"Not really," he said. "I'm just trying to narrow it down. I just want to visit some more schools and talk to more coaches so I can narrow my list down."

Wall was scheduled to start his high school season on Friday, but due to a minor eye surgery that he had on Tuesday he likely will miss his first game of the season. Wall said he should be able to play after that.
