    I just got off the phone with Josh Selby’s mother, Maeshon Witherspoon, and she said more than a dozen schools are involved with her son and that he won’t sign until the late signing period next spring.

    Selby, the No. 2 point guard in the Class of 2010, decommitted from Tennessee and is now wide open.

    “Yeah, it’s more than 12 that are showing interest and that Josh has some interest in as well,” she said.

    “I’m not going to list them now because some schools are still calling at this time. And I don’t want to leave [any]body out or put them in any specific order.”

    Herman Harried, Selby’s head coach at Baltimore (Md.) Lake Clifton, previously mentioned UConn, Kansas, Kentucky, Texas and Syracuse as possibilities — and Witherspoon is on record saying they will definitely consider Kentucky.

    Selby and Witherspoon also visited UConn on Thursday and it went well.

    “It went very well,” she said. “Coach Calhoun was very nice and so were the members of his staff.

    “They have a football facility that they’re going to use as a guideline for a basketball facility. It will be done in the next year.”

    Witherspoon said they planned to set up a series of in-home visits, and then schedule officials beginning in October after Selby takes care of some academic work.

    “We’re probably going to start officials in October,” she said. “He has school obligations that he has to finish up. We’ll do the home visits in September so he can finish up.

    “We’re going to wait until the late signing period.”

    J.J. MOORE TAKING VISITS

    J.J. Moore may not visit every one of the 16 teams in the Big East, but he probably could.

    Seemingly every school in the league is after the 6-5 wing from Brentwood, N.Y. who will play for Kelvin Jefferson at South Kent (Conn.) for his senior year.

    Moore visited Providence on Saturday and said by text it went “Good.”

    He will trip to Pittsburgh on Tuesday and to the Marquette elite camp at the end of the month.

    Rutgers, UConn, St. John’s and Louisville and others figure to get visits. Seton Hall, Oklahoma and Florida were also mentioned by Hunt Bresky, Moore’s advisor.

    Speaking of Providence, Devon Collier of St. Anthony is slated to visit the Friars next Friday, per a source.
