Quincy Miller andDeuce Bello may still visit Baylor but nothing has been set yet.
“I believe so but I’m not sure about that yet,” Bello, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Westchester (N.C.) Country Day, said Tuesday by phone. “I don’t have a date yet.”
Bello and the 6-9 Miller both tripped to Louisville this past weekend and enjoyed it.
“Yeah, I had a good time,” Bello said. “I spent time with Coach [Rick] Pitino and Coach [Steve] Masiello and coahc [Tim] Fuller and got to know them better. I hung out with the teammates. We had fun at the football game against Kentucky.”
Bello said he’s also considering Maryland, Miami, Florida State, Oklahoma State, Wake Forest and Clemson.
Miller is also looking at Baylor, Kentucky, Wake Forest, Kansas, UCLA, Marquette, Duke and Oklahoma.
Though the two have talked about possibly playing together in college, it’s not a necessity.
“It’s not about us going together,” Bello said. “It’s about what’s best for both of us.”
Pat Kahny, the Westchester AD and basketball coach, said it’s also possible one or both players could wait until the spring to sign.
“Both of them were leaning toward not making a decision until after the season is over,” Kahny said.
He added: “The last time we talked there was no real short list unless they’re keeping that to themselves. It’s pretty wide open as far as I know.”
Former Rutgers guard Corey Chandler is now at Texas Southern as a student, but not a student-athlete, per their SID…LeBryan Nash confirmed via text he will visit Kansas for “Late Night in the Phog.” “Yeah, I’m going to Kansas on the 15th of October.” He has no official set to Oklahoma State.
