The nation's No. 1 ranked prospect Greg Monroe has eight schools conducting in-home visits this fall. Although his camp is keeping quite on exactly which schools are involved, the identity of the first two schools visiting him this weekend has been revealed.
Duke and Georgetown begin the eight team parade through Harvey, La.
"All eight of his home visits have been scheduled," said Helen Cox head coach Tyron Mouzon. "He will conclude those visits on September 25 and then narrow down his choices and take official visits."
With a talented team poised to make a run at a state championship and a national ranking, Coach Mouzon praised the progress Monroe has made as a team leader.
"Greg is doing something I've always hoped he would do," said Coach Mouzon. "He is being more vocal and developing into a team leader. I'm really proud of him for coming out of his shell. I think he has gained a comfort level with his high school team and is really pushing the pace in our conditioning workouts."
Monroe, 6-foot-10, 226-pounds, is coming off a strong summer where he dominated inside at the USA Basketball Festival in Colorado Springs and carried that aggressive play to the end of the summer at the NIKE Global Challenge in Portland, Ore.
Greg Monroe scouting report:
A smooth athlete at 6-foot-10, Monroe has an all around skill package that is only going to get better. The lefty has great court awareness and passes the ball extremely well. He is extending his shooting range and is developing scoring moves going to his right. When going to his left, he is a force. Strong on the boards and a shot blocking threat, Monroe also has the quickness to guard on the perimeter. A year younger than most prospects in his class, Monroe has an extremely high ceiling.
