Rashad Bishop Praises His Official Visit

Scout.com's East Coast recruiting expert Mike Sullivan had a chance to speak to a forward from New Jersey who recently came off a visit ...

Could a decision be coming soon? According to Rashad Bishop, a 6-foot-5, 212-pound swingman out of Paterson, New Jersey, his visit to Cincinnati has him thinking about a possible decision.

"I had a really good time at Cincinnati," Bishop said. "It was my first time there. I really enjoyed it."

Though the Cincinnati football team was away and competing in another town, Bishop found plenty to praise the program. "I enjoyed my time with the players," he said. "But I also liked the coaches a lot. I got along great with them."

Rashad now plays for St. Benedict's in Newark, New Jersey under Danny Hurley. Each day in practice Rashad feels he progresses due to the competition level.

This, according to Rashad, will have him prepared properly for the next level. Could the next level be Cincinnati? "I am not sure," he said. "I really have to talk to my coaches before I decide."

Bishop wouldn't state when he might decide but indicated he is currently thinking about choosing a school. Rutgers and Marquette have been mentioned too by Bishop. "But I haven't heard from Marquette in a while," he said.

Marquette recently took a commitment from Blair Academy forward Patrick Hazel. And Bishop has been to the Rutgers campus several times.

Rashad previously played at Kennedy High School in New Jersey where he averaged 22 points a game last season. He is a very active forward who is trying to polish his perimeter game to give him a shot at playing the small forward position on the college level.
