After taking his fifth and final visit to Baylor this past weekend, Darrell Arthur might be ready to put an end to his recruitment. The 6-foot-9, 220-pound power forward from South Oak Cliff High School in Dallas, Texas, intends to meet with his mother and AAU Jazzy Hartwell on Monday night to discuss what steps to take next.
"Darrell, his mother and I are going to meet together tonight and talk about what Darrell might do next," said Hartwell. "We plan to sit-down and talk about the five schools that he has visited. Tonight's meeting will give us the chance to sit down and talk about each of the schools and the visits."
Now that Arthur, the No. 19 ranked player in the class of 2006, has taken official visits to North Carolina, Indiana, Kansas, SMU and Baylor, he might be ready to put an end to his recruitment. However, the possibility still exists that Arthur will take an unofficial visit to Texas.
Should Arthur not be ready to make a decision in the immediate future, the five-star prospect will sign during the late period.
"There is a chance that Darrell might be ready to make a decision about what school to attend, but that is a decision that he is going to have to make. We are also going to talk about the possibility of taking an unofficial visit to Texas.
"Darrell, his mother and I are just going to talk about what he should do next," he added. "I don't know if he is going to sign early or wait until the late period. I will know much more after tonight's meeting."
When Rivals.com last spoke to Arthur, he indicated that Kansas and Indiana were the teams to beat in his recruitment.
"Kansas and Indiana are the leaders in my recruitment," said Arthur. "Those are the two schools that I really like right now. I have already taken official visits to both schools and liked what I saw at both. Kansas and Indiana are definitely the teams to beat."
