Lance Storrs, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound small forward from Columbia High School in Decatur, Ga., is making the rounds on the unofficial visit trail. The three-star wing recently returned home from Kansas and has return engagement planned with an ACC school.
Storrs has been a busy man. He's visited Alabama, Georgia Tech and Indiana and last weekend he checked out the Kansas Jayhawks. The trip to Lawrence stands above the rest, he says.
"That was one of the best visits I've been on," Storrs said. "The fans really love their basketball in Kansas."
The Jayhawks have been involved with the junior since the summer time and Storrs said he was glad he was able to spend some time with the Big 12 program.
"We hung out with the team for like an hour and a half before they took the floor for their Midnight Madness thing. Coach (Bill) Self and coach (Joe) Dooley are really cool guys. They had those guys going," Storrs said. "They are young but they are going to be really good because they are unselfish and have good chemistry."
The visit to Kansas helped cement the Jayhawks in his top three. Alabama and Georgia Tech are the others. Storrs visited Tuscaloosa last month and will visit the Yellow Jackets for the third time in a couple of weeks.
"All of them are really different," Storrs said. "People in Alabama love their football and they really support their team out there. Georgia Tech is good at everything on and off the court. In Lawrence, they treat their team like a NBA team. That is one crazy basketball atmosphere."
So why those three?
"There is long list of things I like about all three of them. I like all of the coaches. Their players are really cool, they make you feel like you are part of the team. All of them are a good place to go and play college basketball," he said. "Everything about them all is just great."
