Florida transfer Allan Chaney of Baltimore enjoyed his visit to St. Joe’s and has a few more planned.
“He was at St. Joe’s yesterday [Thursday] and liked it a lot,” said Chaney’s travel team coach, Calvin Bunkley. “He’ll definitely be at Temple next week and Providence in two weeks.”
Another source said Chaney “thinks he will go to Temple, Providence and Virginia Tech and may not do a fifth visit.”
Chaney could potentially take a fifth visit to Xavier, Rutgers or Seton Hall, Bunkley said.
“He’s looking to fit in with the team,” Bunkley said. “Location-wise he wants to be close to home. And he wants a coach that’s going to play inside-out. He’s a face-up four.”
The 6-8, 220-pound Chaney was rated the No. 27 power forward in the Class of 2008 and will have to sit out a year after transferring.
