Anthony Bennett’s mother, Edith, will finish up home visits in her native Canada with Pittsburgh on Tuesday night, following an afternoon meeting with West Virginia coach Bob Huggins and assistant Larry Harrison.
The 6-foot-7, 230-pound Bennett is considering Kentucky, UConn, Florida, Pitt, Washington, UNLV, Oregon, West Virginia and Missouri, according to Mike George of CIA Bounce.
Bennett, a Toronto native playing at Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep, won’t sign until the spring and will not take any official visits until after Findlay Prep’s season.
As for which schools will get visits, George said, “Not sure. He comes home this weekend for [Canadian] Thanksgiving, so we will figure it out then.”
