Lance Storrs, a chiseled 6-foot-5, 190-pound shooting guard from Columbia High School in Decatur, Ga., recently visited a Big Ten school. The Class of 2007 prospect raved about his time in the Midwest and feels like he's entering the busy AAU season on a high note.
Storrs and a host of AAU teammates visited Indiana University last weekend and came home raving about the Hoosiers.
"The coaching staff and all of the players came in and welcomed us with open arms," Storrs said. "They made us all feel like we were part of the players."
One of the highlights of the trip was walking into Assembly Hall, one of the most storied venues in college basketball.
"I just felt all of the history, all of the great moments that they've had there," Storrs said. "It just felt good to be in there and be a part of it all.
"I learned a lot from that trip. It's not just about basketball. I learned a lot about the academics," he continued. "I know that when I go to a school, I need to feel welcomed and make sure it's a nice place. I felt like that when I was there."
The Hoosiers aren't the only team recruiting the class of 2007 prospect. Storrs said he's hearing from Florida State, Georgia, Clemson, Alabama, Illinois, Virginia Tech and Furman.
