Adam Zagoria covers basketball at all levels. He is the author of two books and an award-winning journalist whose articles have appeared in ESPN The Magazine, SLAM, Sheridan Hoops, Sports Illustrated, Basketball Times and in newspapers nationwide.
While Shabazz Muhammad, Tony Parker and Nerlens Noel are planning on letting the world know their college plans April 11, Anthony Bennett’s announcement could potentially drag out a bit longer.
The 6-foot-7 Bennett is currently at the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland, Ore., and discusses playing with the World Team in the above video from OregonLive.com.
Bennett has yet to schedule any visits, according to Mike George of CIA Bounce.
Bennett, who on Saturday helped Findlay Prep win the ESPN National High School Invitational over Montverde (Fla.) Academy, is considering Kentucky, Florida, UNLV, Oregon and Washington.
“He’s going to take all five visits and to be honest he’s truly struggling [with a decision],” George told SNY.tv.
“He finds positives and negatives in all of them. I told him to just focus on the All-Star games for now and once the Jordan Game is done then it’s time to figure out what you want to do.”
The Jordan Brand Classic is slated for April 14 in Charlotte, N.C.
