The 6-foot-6 Australian point guard plans to trip to Oregon, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, and North Carolina, where his father, Cecil Exum, played.
He has already visited Indiana.
At the same time, Exum is meeting with NBA agents to discuss who will rep him in the NBA Draft.
Exum’s stock is sky-high now and he is projected as the No. 5 pick behind Andrew Wiggins, Julius Randle,Jabari Parker and Joel Embiid by DraftExpress.com.
One NBA executive told ESPN.com’s Chad Ford that he would actually take Exum No. 1 overall.
He could both go through the recruiting process and meet with NBA agents and then make his decision. He has said he will make an announcement in January or February about his plans.
