For the third time in as many weeks, Darrell Arthur will be back on the road this weekend for an official visit. After taking trips to North Carolina and Indiana, Arthur and his mother will spend the weekend in Lawrence, Kan., for Midnight Madness. However, once his visit to KU is complete, it appears that Arthur will likely reschedule his final two official visits for a later date.
"I do know that Darrell is excited about his visit to Kansas this weekend," said Urban DFW Elite AAU Coach Jazzy Hartwell. "I really wish that he had spaced some of his visits out because he is really getting tired. He is a young man, only 17 years old, and this will be his third official visit in as many weeks. However, I do know that Darrell is really excited about the upcoming weekend."
Having already taken official visits to North Carolina and Indiana, Arthur's visit to Kansas this weekend will be his third straight weekend on the road. Coach Hartwell hopes that Arthur will consider rescheduling the remainder of his official visits for a later date.
"I hope that we can reschedule Darrell's official visits to SMU and Baylor," said Hartwell. "I also know that he plans to take an unofficial visit to Texas. You know, Darrell is a young man that will only get to experience his senior year of high school once. He has homecoming and things like that, so I don't want him to miss any of those functions."
After Arthur's visit to Kansas is complete, the 6-foot-9, 220-pound power forward from South Oak Cliff High School in Dallas, Texas, is scheduled to officially visit SMU during the weekend of October 21, which happens to be next weekend. While nothing has been planned as of yet, it is likely that he will take an official visit to Baylor the following weekend.
