Having officially visited Arizona earlier this month, Ivan Rabb is now working on visits to UCLA, Kansas and Cal, his mother told SNY.tv.
The 6-foot-10 forward out of Oakland (CA) Bishop O’Dowd was to visit UCLA Jan. 31, but that date could shift.
“We have a tentative date for UCLA on the 31st but we may have to use that date for Kansas due to scheduling issues,” Tami Rabb told SNY.tv.
Kansas landed 6-8 Ohio forward Carlton Bragg last week, but is still pursuing Rabb.
“We are looking forward to visiting,” Tami Rabb said. “Kansas is still very much in our list of top five schools. We are just trying got find a date that works well with all of us.”
The No. 2 power forward in the Class of 2015 per 247Sports.com Rabb is also considering Kentucky, Arizona and Cal, and will visit Cal last.
“Ivan wil be visiting his hometown school last,” she said.
As for Arizona, it went well.
“The visit went well,” she said previously. “Arizona is a great option for Ivan. The coaching staff was hospitable and informative. Arizona is definitely a school you have to see to believe.”
