Villanueva: IU Has Shot caught up with Charlie Villanueva a day after he and Blair Academy teammate Luol Deng trekked out to Bloomington, Indiana, for official visits of Indiana's campus.
Evidently, the visit left a strong impression on Charlie, who caught a red eye flight and made it to the IS8 League in Queens by 11 am, helping The Long Island Panthers to the title. Villanueva now has two Big Ten schools on list.
"I'm definitely considering Indiana now," said Villanueva.
Charlie enjoyed the campus atmosphere and the fan support.
"It was a nice visit," said Villanueva. "I liked the environment and Coach Davis. They have very dedicated fans in Indiana. It's definitely a basketball state."
Charlie has one more visit lined up- an official trip to Villanova next weekend. He has a fifth official visit that he might use, but is unsure of who will be the recipient for that trip.
"I might use my fifth visit," said Villanueva. "I'm not sure where I would take it."
