Some 37 coaches, including Kentucky’s John Calipari, North Carolina’s Roy Williams, South Carolina’s Frank Martin, Notre Dame’s Mike Brey, Arizona’s Sean Miller and Vanderbilt’s Bryce Drew saw Shittu at a recent open gym at Vermont Academy.
Sources said Notre Dame and Kentucky are out of the mix for Shittu, who is expected to decide in the spring.
Shittu broke down each of the three schools he will visit for Scout.com:
David McCormack, the 6-foot-9 center from Oak Hill (VA) Academy, will announce on Sunday at 6 p.m., Oak Hill coach Steve Smith told ZAGSBLOG.
The Team Loaded Twitter account said he will announce live on Wavy News 10.
McCormack is down to Kansas, Xavier, Oklahoma State, and N.C. State, Smith said. He has visited everywhere but Oklahoma State. He is slated to take an official to Kansas next weekend, but it remains unclear if that will still happen.
“I don’t know if he’ll go past September, he’s getting kind of antsy and I think he likes a couple schools,” Smith said recently on The 4 Quarters Podcast.
