The #15 player in the ESPNU Super 60, Brad Beal, is hoping to decide what school he’ll visit on October 16th. That night is when most college basketball programs around the country kick off their seasons by celebrating with their fans. The decision will certainly be difficult for Beal, who has some of the best programs in the country recruiting him. Florida, Kansas, Illinois, Missouri, Duke and Ohio State currently make up Beal’s list, but Beal is only deciding between three of those schools for next week’s Midnight Madness celebrations. He’ll be deciding between Florida, Illinois and Kansas when choosing where he will go for an unofficial visit.
“Yeah and Illinois as well,” said Beal, who added the Illini to Florida and Kansas as the schools he choosing between for a visit.
As for naming those schools as his top three, Beal isn’t ready to do anything like that yet.
“I mean they’re high, but I’m not sure if I even have a top three,” said Beal.
It doesn’t appear that Beal will be making his decision until he returns from Colorado, where he will be attending, but not likely to participate, in the USA Developmental team mini camp.
“Probably after Colorado,” Beal said of when he’ll decide where he will visit.
Beal likely won’t participate in the camp due to tweaking his ankle last Sunday during an open gym workout at his high school.
“On Sunday,”said Beal about when he tweaked his ankle. “It’s cool, just rehabbing it now. I don’t think I can play,” added Beal about playing in Colorado.
Last month, Beal told TheShiver.com that he is hoping to make his college decision before his upcoming basketball season. It appears that is still the case, but it’s not a guarantee that it will happen.
“I would like to, but if not, I’m just going to go with when it feels right,” Beal said about making his college decision.
As for now, coaches and fans from Kansas, Florida and Illinois will be waiting as patiently as possible in hopes that Beal announces a visit to their school on October 16th.
