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.
Moses Kingsley, a 6-foot-9 Nigerian center at Huntington (W.V.) Prep, has two visits set up at this point.
“He’s going to Arkansas this weekend and Louisville the 28th,” Huntington coach Rob Fulford told SNY.tv Monday. “Other than that he doesn’t have anything set.”
Cardinals head coach Rick Pitino, who sees some Gorgui Dieng in Kingsley, will also visit Kingsley Sept. 18, Fulford said.
Fulford said Louisville assistant Wyking Jones “visited with [Kingsley]” this weekend, although Kingsley didn’t participate in workouts because he is recovering from malaria.
Kingsley was recently hospitalized for four days with the disease after contracting it in Africa.
“He went home to renew his visa in Nigeria and came back very sick,” the coach said.
