Craig Victor, 6-7 JR PF New Orleans (Louisiana) St. Augustine, is an impressive young prospect. Victor has a good body and frame, with above average athleticism and a good motor. With continued development, he figures to be one of the better four men in the class of 2014.

I spoke with Victor at Adidas Nations and asked about the schools he's been hearing from so far.

"UCLA, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma, Baylor, Syracuse, Florida, Georgetown, LSU, Miami, UConn and Arizona," said Victor.

I asked Victor if any schools stand out from the group.

"UCLA, Oklahoma, Baylor, UConn and Arizona," said Victor.

Victor talked a little about the things he's looking for in a school.

"I want someplace that is family-oriented," said Victor. "I want to play with a good guard that can get me the ball and play on a team that will compete for Final Fours."

Victor said he has taken a number of unofficial visits so far.

"I've been to UCLA, LSU, Baylor, Texas and Alabama," said Victor.

When asked how his visit to UCLA went, Victor replied, "I loved it. Great campus, great school. A lot of different races, which isn't something I haven't seen before. And the new stadium is nice."

Victor has a time frame in mind for making his decision.

"I'd like to decide by the end of my junior year," said Victor.

Victor said he has a 3.3 GPA.
