  • Wall to Visit N.C. Central

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    John Wall isn’t done taking visits quite yet.

    The No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2009 will visit North Carolina Central today and won’t cut his list until Monday at the earliest.

    “I want to find out what a historically black school has to offer,” Wall told The News & Observer Thursday night of N.C. Central, an NCAA Division I independent.

    Wall has reportedly known N.C. Central assistant coach LeVelle Moton for years.

    Wall had previously said he would cut his list this week to “two or three.” Wall has a long list of suitors including Kentucky, Duke, Baylor, Kansas, N.C. State, Florida, Memphis and Miami.

    In other Wall news, he told SLAM Magazine that he would probably only spend one year at whichever college he chose.

    “I can’t say I’ m one and done,” he told the magazine. “If I play well next year, then I’ll come out, but if I think I need another year, I’ll stay until I’m ready.”

    He added: “After my first year in college, I wanna be one  of the top lottery picks. You might see Lance [Stephenson] and a couple of other players in my class, too.”
