"Team was just together. I guess they don't have the word "family" on their shorts for nothing. They are really close. I liked that a lot. I did enjoy my time there."
Deng told us that he will continue to take visits. "I am visiting Missouri this weekend," Deng said. "I plan on visiting Indiana on October 11th and Duke in late October."
Deng told us he will take his time in making a decision. "I wanted to take my visits before deciding," Deng said. "I haven't committed to anybody. I just want to take the rest of my visits and compare. Then about a week or two after my last visit I will decide."
George Washington and Texas appear to be out.
