DeaconSports Exclusive Interview: Kyle Visser

Wake Forest will get a visit from Michigan forward Kyle Visser this weekend. DeaconSports caught up with Visser Wednesday to find out his thoughts heading into the visit.

Wake Forest recruiting prospect Kyle Visser will take an official visit the Winston-Salem campus this weekend. Visser, a 6-9 forward out of Michigan, will be taking his third official visit of the year when he checks out Wake Forest.

"Recruiting's going pretty well," Visser said. "I visited Georgia last weekend and they have a nice campus. I'm leaving [Thursday night] for Wake Forest and will be there about eight, nine, or ten. I'll be coming back Sunday." As for a current list of schools, his top seven in no particular order are "Wake Forest, San Diego State, Notre Dame, Michigan, Indiana, Georgia, and Western Michigan."

Do any of those schools stand out above the rest? "Not really," Visser said. "I've still got to get a feel for a couple more schools before I can say that any are better than the others. They're all in the race."

"All of those schools [have offered] except Michigan who said they will," Visser continued. Visser, who has already visited San Diego State, Georgia, Michigan State, Michigan, Western Michigan, and others, tells DeaconSports that he loves the coaching staff at Wake.

"Skip Prosser and the whole coaching staff seem like quality guys," Visser stated. "I'm looking forward to meeting them and the team. I watch them on TV and they play the best – very good teams. But in my decision, the people are the most important to me. That's who I'll have to hang around with for the next four years of my life."

As for his game, Visser believes he has a lot to work on, but does have some features that make his game stand out. "I think I can shoot pretty well and run the floor more so than most 6-9, 6-10 guys," Visser said. "Lately, I've been shooting a lot – three-point shooting especially, to improve that. I'm also working on post moves and need to work on ball-handling more too."
