Selby planning more visits
Five-star 2010 guard Josh Selby of Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha High School is still wide open in his recruitment, but he does have plans to visit four other schools after coming off his Louisville visit.
Next up for Selby is a September 20 visit to Tennessee for the Florida football game. Then on October 4, he will visit Virginia Tech. He is also in the process of setting up visits to Florida and Memphis.
Selby, 6-foot-1, 180-pounds, noted a couple new things he learned about Louisville during his visit last week.
"I learned that they treat the Louisville basketball team like it's an NBA team," said Selby. "I also learned that under Coach Pitino, Louisville has produced a lot of NBA players."
In the final analysis, however, Selby is more concerned with off the court issues in choosing a school.
"The most important thing to me is looking at how a school will benefit me in life in general," he said. "Basically, I'm looking at where I can mature the most."
Being recruited as both a point guard and shooting guard, Selby is willing to spend time at both positions but would prefer that most of those minutes be at the point guard position.
"Louisville is recruiting me as a combo guard," he said. "Tennessee is recruiting me as point guard. Some schools see me as a shooting guard and others as a point guard. I want to play the point, but I'll play either. I just want to play."
Selby is the No. 7 prospect in the Rivals150 and the No. 2 ranked point guard.
Josh Selby scouting report:
A combo guard, Selby is a dynamic playmaker who specializes in knocking down tough shots. At times he can get out of control and force shots, but there is no denying his ability to create something out of nothing. Although he has a scorers mentality, Selby also has the ability to creative scoring opportunities for teammates and is a strong on the ball defender.
