Baltimore (Md.) Lake Clifton guard Josh Selby will announce his visit schedule on Wednesday, according to his mother.
After decommitting from Tennessee, Selby is looking at Baylor, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Miami and Syracuse.
“Yes, we are going to visit those schools,” Maeshon Witherspoon, Selby’s mother, wrote in a text.
Selby will visit Kansas this coming weekend for “Late Night in the Phog.”
“He will take an unofficial visit to KU for Midnight Madness,” Witherspoon said.
The visits will be unofficial because Selby has yet to take his SAT or ACT.
BOSTON UNIVERSITY LANDS PHILLY TRIO
Former Villanova assistant Patrick Chambers has scored with a trio of recruits from Philly Friends’ Central.
Boston University got commitments from 6-7 PF power forward Dom Morris, 6-4 G Travis Robinson and 5-8 point guard H.J. Gaskins.
“We decided all together,” Gaskins told Alex Schwartz of Northstar Basketball. “Trav, Dom, and I are family. There is no question about that. It’s beyond basketball. It just so happens we’re brothers both on and off the court.”
Robinson told Schwartz: “I loved the team and the facilities, and most of all, BU is a great academic school and can attend with two of my current teammates who are pretty much my brothers.”
Morris, who averaged 12 points and eight rebounds last year, was being recruited by Siena, Providence, Penn State and La Salle. Robinson averaged 12.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.0 blocks per game and also considered Robert Morris. Gaskins considered Harvard, according to Schwartz.

QUOTE OF THE DAYGreat story here on Rumeal Robinson with this dandy:
[Rumeal Robinson] made more than $5 million in NBA salary alone, but blew much of it on a strip club habit that would have made Pacman Jones blush. “He would go on binges of two whole weeks where he spent $20,000 a night at a strip club,” Donald Barrows says. “Not only that, but he’d also have a bunch of the strippers come back to his place, get buck-naked, and clean his house for $500 or $1,000 each.”
