Givon Crump, 6-foot-6, 210-pound small forward from Wolfeboro (NH) Brewster Academy ranked No. 26 among small forwards in the Class of 2009, has set his visits.
Crump will visit Oregon State (9/13), DePaul (9/20) and Baylor (10/4). South Florida, George Washington and Rutgers are also in the mix, but he has already visited Rutgers, GW and Maryland unofficially.
“(Baylor) just jumped in and the situation there looks good,” Crump’s AAU coach, Marcus Matthews, said. “I’m not certain of his last two visits. Givon has already been to Rutgers on a unofficial, so im not sure if he wants to revisit. The other two schools he may visit are South Florida and maybe Michigan.”
Brewster coach Jason Smith also said DePaul and Baylor visited campus Tuesday, while Oregon State, South Florida and Rutgers were on campus Wednesday.
