Anthony “Cat” Barber will likely choose from among three schools, legendary AAU coach Boo Williams told SNY.tv Tuesday night.
“He’s going to probably decide between Kansas and Alabama and N.C. State,” Williams said.
Dave Telep of ESPN.com reported earlier that Louisville was no longer recruiting Barber, a top point guard out of Hampton (Va.) High.
“I don’t know what happened,” Williams said in confirming the news.
Barber visited Louisville last weekend, has N.C. State (Sept. 14-16) and Alabama (Sept. 21-23). He visited Kansas Aug. 31.
Barber and AAU teammate Troy Williams have talked about possibly playing together at Alabama or Louisville, but now Louisville appears to be out of the mix.
Kansas is not actively recruiting Williams, so that would leave Alabama. Head coach Anthony Grant is due to meet with Williams Friday at Oak Hill.
But he is competing with Ohio State, Indiana, North Carolina, LSU and South Carolina for the 6-6 Williams.
