Since decommitting from Louisville this past week, Quentin Snider has been besieged with phonecalls.
Now the Louisville Ballard point guard and his family are focusing on a few schools to visit.
His father, Scott Snider, told SNY.tv Saturday Quentin will likely visit Indiana and Xavier unofficially by the end of August, and is also planning official visits to UCLA, USC and UConn.
“Right now he’s got offers from Minnesota, Marquette, West Virginia, USC, Illinois, Loyola Marymount, UConn, Texas A&M, UCLA, Vanderbilt and Memphis,” Scott said.
“He’s getting some interest from Michigan State, Indiana, Texas Tech, Cincinnati, Purdue, Butler, Xavier and Manhattan.”
Scott said they would drive to schools that are close — such as Indiana and Xavier — for unofficial visits.
“We told Indiana we’d come for a visit there and we talked to Xavier and we’ll visit there, too,” Scott said. “We haven’t got a date for either one of them. We just said we’ll try to get there by the end of August or the beginning of September.
“Those we’ll take unofficials,” Scott said.
UCLA, USC and UConn are in the mix for official visits.
“We’ll probably visit UCLA and USC and probably visit UConn also,” he said. “Probably those three.”
No dates have been set for those.
As for the decommitment from Louisville, Scott said the Cardinals simply had too many point guards in the mix with Chris Jones and Terry Rozier.
“It got to the point where it got really, really crowded at that position,” he said. “It was just something where the situation changed after he committed.”
