After officially tripping to North Carolina this past weekend, Labissiere will visit Georgetown beginning Thursday and then will hit Kentucky (Sept. 19-21), Tennessee (Oct. 3-5) and Baylor (Oct. 10-12) and then Memphis (Oct. 31) for an unofficial.
He lives near the Memphis campus and has been there multiple times.
He recently cut his list to six schools — Kentucky, Memphis, North Carolina, Georgetown, Baylor and Tennessee.
“I just want to play for a great coach and be surrounded by guys who are going to get me to the next level, not just on the court but as a person, too,” he told SNY.tv last month in New York at the Reebok Classic X.
