Prep Player Will Take Visit After Release

An updated visit story on the status of Johnny Higgins ...

Johnny Higgins, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound combo guard from Notre Dame Prep (Mass.) was released from his letter of intent with Duquesne last week. The Baltimore native will take a visit this weekend.

"He's going to visit New Mexico State this weekend," said Notre Dame Prep coach Ryan Hurd. "Quinnipiac is another school that is showing a lot of interest. Coach (Tom) Moore has some great connections in Baltimore."

Jahmar Young, another Baltimore product and Notre Dame alum, is a freshman at New Mexico St.

Hurd sees Higgins, who was originally a member of the class of 2007, as a playmaking guard with the ability to create for himself and others.

"He's at his best with the ball in his hands," said Hurd. "Whatever you want to call him in terms of position, the ball needs to be in his hands."
