    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Following his final visit this weekend to Indiana, Lourawls “Tum Tum” Nairn is hoping to decide “soon,” his coach told SNY.tv.

    “We would like to make a decision soon,” Belaire (KS) Sunrise Christian Academy coach Kyle Lindsted told SNY.tv.

    “We will wait till he’s 100 percent sure he’s got the right place for him no matter how long it takes.

    A 5-foot-10, 175-pound Bahamas native, Nairn is also considering Minnesota, Oklahoma and Michigan State, and has now visited all four schools.

    Lindsted said the Indiana visit went well.

    “He really like their skill development, strength and conditioning, the coaches,” Lindsted said. “The players were good to him. He liked that he was able to go to church with [coach Tom] Crean. I think he was impressed with the whole thing.”

    Lindsted said coaches from all four schools will be in to see Nairn this week “unless we tell them not to bother.”

    Michigan State is expected today (Monday), Oklahoma Tuesday and Minnesota Wednesday.
