Chris Taft, a 6-9 power forward/center from Xaverian High School, told us tonight he will announce his school of choice next week. "I am thinking about it," Taft said.
Chris told us he has no more visits. But sources tell us he has already made some calls to the coaches involved in the recruiting process to inform them he is going to sign with Pittsburgh in November.
Taft has previously mentioned interest in Syracuse, North Carolina, Connecticut, and Villanova. "I don't plan on taking any more visits," Taft said. "And no more in school or home visits."
Taft cancelled his trip to Syracuse a weekend ago and has not rescheduled it. Speculation started to build then in New York that Chris was not going to take any more visits. He has already been to the campus of Pittsburgh. After that visit, Chris praised the campus and the coaches. It was clear then that Pittsburgh was the team to beat.
