Memphis, Miami, Missouri Latest to Offer Point Guard Ulis
Memphis, Miami and Missouri are the latest schools to offer 2014 point guard Tyler Ulis, his father told SNY.tv.
UConn and Illinois have also expressed interest, James Ulis said.
The 5-foot-8 Ulis out of Chicago Heights (IL) Marian Catholic has taken one official visit — to Oregon State — and has four left. James previously said his son would likely take officials to Iowa, Michigan State and Florida State.
USC, Purdue, DePaul and Northwestern are also under consideration.
“After Tyler and I talk this week, I will know [about official visits],” James told SNY.tv. “He has four left. We may take one more unofficial if he wants.”
Missouri appears to be intriguing.
“We are going to finalize visits soon, it looks like the first week of August,” James said. “Missouri has a great style of play and an awesome homecourt experience.”
