Lekan Ajayi, a 6-foot-11 center from Quality Education (N.C.), will take back-to-back official visits to Seton Hall and Tennessee in the coming days.
“It starts tomorrow,” Ajayi said by text. “Me and my family will be at the game against St. John’s.”
Ajayi has already taken an unofficial to Seton Hall and said he liked it because the program needs big men for next season and one of his brothers lives in New Jersey.
“My second official visit to Tennessee is this Saturday and me and my dad and my uncle Godwin Owinje will be going with me,” Ajayi added.
Tennessee hosts Kentucky Sunday in its SEC regular season finale.
He is also considering Florida State, Loyola Marymount and Miami, he said.
