Herrion will be in New York checking out a few high school games during the day.
Famous is a 6-foot-11 center from Westchester Community College who is leading the NJCAA in rebounding at 14 per game and ranks No. 5 in scoring at 24 points per game.
“Jarrid is just trying to finish the season strong,” WCC assistant Dave Vandiver said. “Seton Hall, Villanova, Missouri, St. John’s, Xavier, Houston, UConn are on his list of schools of interest.”
Famous will sign in the spring and have two years of eligibility remaining.
“That’s my goal,” Famous said previously. “Wait to the spring, see how it goes.”
