    LJ Figueroa, the 6-foot-6 wing from St. John’s, will take several official visits as he decides whether to transfer, sources said.

    Figueroa was en route as of Tuesday evening to take an official visit to Western Kentucky. Assistant coach Marc Hsu first recruited Figueroa to New Mexico State. Figueroa will then take an official to Arkansas, the former school of current St. John’s head coach Mike Anderson. 

    After that, Figueroa will potentially visit Georgia and Miami.

    Figueroa averaged 14.4 points and 6.4 rebounds last season under coach Chris Mullin.

    He appeared at Anderson’s initial press conference last Friday at Madison Square Garden along with teammates Mustapha Heron and Eli Wright. Sources said Anderson was busy meeting with his new players early this week before heading out on the recruiting trail beginning Friday.
