St. John's University had a visitor from overseas this past weekend. Former Proctor Academy (New Hampshire) big man Phil Wait met with St. John's head coach Norm Roberts and his coaching staff. Then he was given a tour of the area and campus, according to sources close to Wait, who appeared to enjoy his visit that he gave a commitment.

Wait was also seen at the St. John's team camp yesterday too.

Wait is listed at 7-foot-1.

St. John's received an answer today on Wait, who gave Roberts a commitment. According to sources, Wait played at a basketball academy in the Canary Islands. He shed about 40 pounds to get down to 240. Sources say he is much improved from his days at Proctor and runs the floor much better.

Sources indicate that Wait will see some rotational time this upcoming season while become more of an impact player by the time he is a sophomore.
