Josh Selby could wait until the late signing period to pick a school, according to Herman Harried, Selby’s coach at Baltimore (MD) Lake Clifton.
“I don’t think he’s going to decide early,” Harried said Thursday by phone. “It’s up to him and his mom.”
The No. 2 point guard in the Class of 2010 according to Rivals, Selby recently decommitted from Tennessee and is being courted by a list of top schools, including UConn, Kentucky, Kansas, Memphis, Texas and Syracuse.
“Everybody’s coming after him,” Harried said.
Selby will visit UConn beginning Thursday, along with 6-8 Long Island forward Rod Odom.
Harried said no other visits have yet been set.
Harried played at Dunbar High with the late Reggie Lewis and then competed at Syracuse. He is close with UConn head coach Jim Calhoun, who coached at Northeastern, and with Husky assistants Pat Sellers and Andre LaFleur. LaFleur played alongside Lewis at Northeastern.
“I knew Coach Calhoun,” he said. “I played with Reggie Lewis who helped put Northeastern on the map.”
Selby will be at UConn for a couple of days and will then plan his next move.
“When he comes back he’ll sit down and go over what he’s gonna do next,” Harried said. “His mom helps him a lot.
“I think anybody has a shot. I think that’s why he opened his recruitment, to give everybody a shot.”
