AKRON, Ohio — Ricky Ledo is here at the LeBron James Skills Academy and the former Providence commit brought a long list of schools with him.
Kentucky, UConn, Providence, Texas, Syracuse, Arizona and Florida were the ones he mentioned.
Yet the 6-foot-6 Providence native singled out Kentucky and said he planned to take a visit sometime soon.
“I’m going to go out and see Kentucky for sure,” he said. “Other than that, I’m not sure yet….I was supposed to go visit a while ago and I didn’t make it.
“I like that school, Coach Cal and Coach ‘O’ [Orlando Antigua], just the atmosphere of the school.”
As for reports that Ledo will play with the 2012 Puerto Rican Senior National Team, he declined comment.
“I don’t know about that,” said Ledo, whose father is Puerto Rican. “I’ve seen reports about that. I’m not sure yet…As of now I’m not playing with them, so I just don’t know what I’m going to do yet.”
