Wilson Chandler, the 6-7 wing forward from Benton Harbor, Mich. took his ACT test this past weekend, and now all he's waiting for is the results.
"I felt like I did pretty well on it," Chandler said of the test. "I think I knew a lot of the answers."
Chandler is waiting the test results so he can schedule official visits to DePaul and Ohio State. As soon as he receives the results, he will immediately schedule visits on consecutive weekends and then ponder his decision.
It won't take Chandler, who has already visited DePaul unofficially, very long to find out how he did.
"I am supposed to get my results on the 5th (of October)," Chandler said. "I'll set the visits immediately after."
In all likelihood, Chandler will take his visits the 9th and 16th of October to DePaul and Ohio State. At very most, he would try to take his final visit on the 23rd.
Chandler professes no leader of the two schools.
"I would say they are still pretty even right now," Chandler noted.
Although the two teams seem to be pretty even to Chandler, DePaul, at the moment, has the upper hand simply because he has visited them. He didn't seem to believe it was all that significant, but he definitely had a good time.
"It went really well," Chandler said of his unofficial to DePaul a few weeks ago. "I got to play in an open gym, see a lot of the facilities, meet some of the players and recruits…it was real cool."
For added guidance, Chandler has consulted many of the people around him to help make his decision.
He has spoken with his high school coach, his AAU coach, as well as his family. They all are taking the same approach.
"They are just guiding me and helping me spot what to look for," Chandler said. "They want me to make the right decision, but they want it to be my decision."
Right now, academics are extremely important with Chandler. He has work in the classroom to be eligible, and for that reason, the results of this test are of the utmost importance.
Chandler said he was hoping to get at least a 19 on his ACT, perhaps a number that may be indicative of what he needed to be eligible as of now.
His AAU coach, Chris Grier, coach of the Michigan Hurricanes, is optimistic he will get it done.
"He has work to do, there's no question about that," Grier said of
Chandler. "Right now I'd say it's about 50/50 (that he qualifies). But, if
he does his work, I think he's going to make it."
