Adam Zagoria covers basketball at all levels. He is the author of two books and an award-winning journalist whose articles have appeared in ESPN The Magazine, SLAM, Sheridan Hoops, Sports Illustrated, Basketball Times and in newspapers nationwide.
Despite an Internet report indicating that Devin Ebanks has cut his list in half, Lawrence McGugins, Ebanks’ AAU coach, says the 6-9 forward is still considering four schools.
“False,” McGugins wrote in an email message in reference to the Internet report. “Dev never wrote anything.”
Ebanks visited Memphis this past weekend and is considering that school along with Rutgers, West Virginia and Texas.
He told Memphis reporters he would announce his decision after his graduation from St. Thomas More (Conn.) on May 18.
A source at West Virginia said he had no knowledge that the list had been cut and added that Ebanks has done everything he initially said he was going to do, including visiting all four schools and then planning an announcement.
