PF Wally Judge Down to Two Schools

Kansas State transfer and 6-foot-9, 250-pound big man Wally Judge has narrowed his list to two schools, and he spoke to about the two finalists, what he thinks about both schools and when he wants to make a decision.

Kansas State transfer Wally Judge is down to two schools are a weekend visit to Maryland, and he is hoping to decide in the next two weeks.

The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Judge said he "already cancelled" an official visit to Washington.

"Right now, it's Rutgers and Maryland," said Judge, who was asked about a leader. "As of right now, I honestly don't know. I'm trying to figure that out as we speak."

Judge is back at Kansas State taking finals, and he said he is hoping to decide before he leaves campus in the middle of the month.

"The sooner the better," he said. "As soon as I figure that out, I can start moving my stuff." Judge, who is from Washington, D.C., and played prep ball in Jacksonville, Fla., visited Maryland over the weekend, and it created an extra perk.

"It was nice, and I got away for a little bit and got home to see my home, which was nice," Judge said. "I hadn't been home, really, in four years."

But the reason for the official visit was to meet with Terps coach Gary Williams and get to know the players, and those goals were accomplished.

"I think this time around I got to actually see more of coach Williams, another side of him than I saw in high school," Judge said. "I got to talk to him, but it wasn't like a major conversation. I got to know a little bit more about him, get to understand him a little bit more as a coach. That is a good thing."

Judge acknowledged the two schools were "pretty close," but the depth of young talent at Rutgers stands out.

"The thing that I like about them is they've got a talent that people don't really know about," Judge said. "Those guys are really talented, Dane Miller, Kadeem Jack, Gil (Gilvydas Biruta), all those guys are talented and most of them are city kids, like myself.

"The past two years I've been out in Kansas with guys from Kansas or Chicago, or Texas. You kind of lose the atmosphere being around other city guys. They act like you act, they think like you think, and city guys play with a certain mentality. When I went up there, that's what I liked. It was like I was back in my neighborhood."
