Brooklyn Lincoln guard Isaiah Whitehead plans to visit three schools, he told Scout.com.
“After this I’m going to start planning my visits out,” Whitehead told the site after a game at the Fab 48 in Las Vegas. “I’m definitely going to visit Syracuse again, Arizona maybe and UCLA. Those are the definite ones right now.”
The 6-foot-4 Whitehead had previously considered Louisville, but as has been reported by Jody Demling and others, the Cardinals are out now after they received a pledge from 2014 shooting guard JaQuan Lyle. Louisville has three guards committed for 2014.
Whitehead is also still considering Minnesota, St. John’s and Miami, he told Scout.
Syracuse has long been considered a potential landing spot for the Lincoln guard, who has talked in the past about playing with 2014 Orange commit Chris McCullough of Brewster (N.H.) Academy.
Arizona has recently come into the picture with assistant Book Richardson stepping up his recruitment of the Lincoln guard.
UCLA remains in the hunt for a slew of 2014 guards, including Whitehead, Rashad Vaughn, Josh Perkins, Jordan McLaughlin and Jared Terrell.
Whitehead and Philadelphia point guard Ja’Quan Newton have talked about a potential package deal, with Syracuse, Minnesota, USC and UCLA among the potential landing spots.
Newton plans to cut his list soon.
