Mario Kegler, a 6-foot-7 small forward who recently announced his transfer to Oak Hill Academy (Va.), has four official visits in mind at the moment.
Kegler is currently planning on visiting Maryland, Indiana, Arizona State and UConn, Omhar Carter, Kegler’s guardian and AAU coach, told SNY.tv on Saturday.
Mississippi State may also get a visit.
No dates are set as of now.
“We are deciding on the other one,” Carter said of the official visits. “This is also subject to change as he is talking to a lot of head coaches.”
Kegler will be in New York next week for the Under Armour Elite 24 Game slated for Aug. 22 in Brooklyn.
