Mount Vernon point guard Jabarie Hinds has cut his list to seven schools.
The 6-foot, 175-pound Hinds is considering Oklahoma State, Wake Forest, Cincinnati, Miami, UConn, UNLV and West Virginia.
“I only have two official visits planned in September, Oklahoma State and UNLV,” Hinds, the No. 23 point guard in the Class of 2011, said Tuesday.
“I’m going to take four officials just in case I don’t sign in the fall. I’ll have one extra visit.”
Hinds said he planned to sign in the fall but it is possible he could wait until the spring.
He says no school leads right now.
“No favorites,” he said.
