Following his fifth and final official visit to Indiana this past weekend, Mario Kegler is expected to cut his list to three schools this week.
The 6-foot-6 Kegler is considering Indiana, Baylor, Arizona State, Maryland and Mississippi State and has visited all five schools
“Now is the narrow it down process,” Omhar Carter, his guardian, told SNY.tv. “Take a couple days to narrow it down to three and then from those three go from there and then pick out of those three.”
Kegler’s goal is to sign during the early period Nov. 11-18.
As for Indiana, he visited along with 2016 commit Curtis Jones of Huntington (W.V.) Prep and others, and stayed with wing Troy Williams.
“It was good,” Carter said. “Just the way the basketball team handled the practice. The way they run their stuff, how fast they play and how fast they practice.”
