Still with a school list of the same six schools, Thaddeus Young has three scheduled visits ahead of him. The 6-foot-8, 205-pound small forward from Mitchell High School in Memphis, Tenn., spent last weekend in Atlanta, Ga., visiting Georgia Tech.
"The visit was pretty cool," said Young, the No. 3 prospect in the Rivals150. "It's in the city, and I'm a city guy. Javaris [Crittenton] and I are good friends. He took me to a high school football game Friday night.
"I also hung out with all the players on the team and went to the Georgia Tech football game on Saturday. Then they showed me the town that night.
"I had a good time visiting with Coach Hewitt. He's a down to earth guy. I also like Coach Young a lot. He is a really fun guy."
With Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Arkansas, Memphis, Tennessee and Kentucky comprising his school list, Young will head to North Carolina this weekend. He also has visits slated for Kentucky and Arkansas.
Planning to sign during the early period in November, Young noted a few things he will consider while choosing a school.
"I'll look at how the coach gets along with the players," he said. "I also want to know what type of Business Program the school has and how the academics are set up with the players and the advisors. How crazy the fans get during the game is also important."
Young, who averaged 28 and 14 points pre game, played tremendous basketball in the spring and early summer but had trouble matching that success in July after injuring his ankle.
Perhaps the most versatile player in the 2006 class, Young has the tools to make just about any play on the court.
