Dale Vanwright, Jr.,, the 6-foot-6, 200-pound small forward from Bellaire High School in Houston, Texas., is ready to take another step forward in his recruitment. After taking an unofficial visit to Colorado, the No. 59 ranked player in the class of 2006 will likely take one or two more unofficial visits within the next several months.
“We took an unofficial visit to Colorado during the weekend of Midnight Madness,” Dale Vanwright, Sr., said. “The visit to Colorado went real good and I believe that they are a program that is on the rise. They definitely have a promising future. We plan to take an unofficial visit to Texas A&M, and might visit one or two more schools during Dale’s junior year.”
With as many as 18 high major programs currently interested in the No. 13 ranked small forward, Vanwright does not intend to make any decisions about his future until next year. The family has decided to take a number of unofficial visits to get a better feel for each campus. Vanwright, Jr., fully intends to take a number of official visits next fall.
“Each and every school in the Big 12 has expressed an interest in my son,” Mr. Vanwright said. “Many of them plan to come to watch my son practice throughout the year. Miami-FL and Georgia Tech have already been down to watch Dale practice during an open gym session. Boston College, Cincinnati and Connecticut have really turned up the heat in their recruitment of my son.
“I don’t really know if Dale will take all five visits next fall, but I do know that he wants to take some visits and get a better feel for some of the campuses,” he added. “A lot of coaches’ have told me that they plan to come watch Dale play during the Texas High School Jamboree. Coaches’ from Oklahoma, Colorado, Texas A&M, Texas and a few others have told me that they will be here during the November 26-27 event.”
