Austin Rivers will visit North Carolina and Duke in October and will also visit Kansas and Florida at some point.
“I’m visiting Duke and North Carolina in October — on Oct. 1 and the 16th,” Rivers, the No. 1 player in the Class of 2011, said by text.
Rivers said he wasn’t sure which visit will be first but it sounds like he will go to Carolina Oct. 1 and Duke Oct 15 for Countdown to Craziness.
Therion Joseph, Rivers’ AAU coach, said Rivers would also visit Kansas and Florida.
“He’s going to [visit] Kansas and he’ll drive up to Florida,” Joseph said. “He does that all the time.”
A visit to Kentucky is not planned at this time.
“He doesn’t have a Kentucky visit scheduled,” he said.
