The Search Is On

At the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions, Javaris Crittenton sounded off on his recruitment and exactly what he's looking for.

Javaris Crittenton, a 6-foot-5, 185 pound point guard out of Atlanta, GA., knows exactly what he's looking for, now he's just got to find it.

Ranked the 5th best point guard in his class by Scout.com, Crittenton has been doing his research on three specific schools. His research of Georgia Tech, Florida and Wake Forest started a few weeks ago and he's currently diagnosing tape of each school.

"No sir," Crittenton responded when asked if he had a favorite. "Just studying tape of all of them, watching their style of play, and seeing how I could fit in."

He also knows exactly what he's looking for, and it seems to be a good connection with a certain school.

"You always want to have a good relationship with the coaching staff," Crittenton explained. "But it's playing time also."

"I need to get a good feel with the coaching staffs to get a good feel [of] how I fit in. Just communicating with them and how I fit in. Communication is very important and that's the main thing."

Crittenton said that those three schools are his final three schools and that he wants to wait until fall to make his decision.

"You know how recruitment is. I could wake up at any given time in the morning and say Wake Forest or Georgia Tech fits me the best," Crittenton declared. "You know how that is, but I really want to wait until the fall to make that decision."

Crittenton, who attends Southwest Christian Academy of Atlanta, hasn't taken any official visits up to this point, but because of his location he has seen Georgia Tech's campus. The point guard tried to take an unofficial to Wake Forest before the Bob Gibbon's Tournament of Champions but some logistical problems hindered it.

"I was looking to take an unofficial to Wake during the tourney, but they said it would be illegal," Crittenton said.

Crittenton also touched on Wake's head coach Skip Prosser.

"He made a great impact. He was very honest," Crittenton said about Wake's head man. "He had a different approach from everybody else. I liked that."
