The country’s top high school senior prospect, John Wall, spoke to Jason Jordan of ESPN.com about his recruitment.
Wall, 6'4" from Word of God Christian Academy in Raleigh, N.C., said he currently is “leaning toward Kansas and Memphis, not specifically in that order.”
He also has Baylor, North Carolina State, Oregon, and Kentucky on his list.
“Those are the two coaches who I’ve had the best connection with so far because they’ve been in for in-home visits,” Wall said of Bill Self and John Calipari.
Wall told ESPN.com that Self told Wall he’d “have to work for everything.” Calipari compared Wall to NBA No. 1 draft pick Derrick Rose to indicate he’d have the ball in his hands a lot, which Wall said was “attractive.”
Wall told ESPN “probably” when asked if he was a likely one-year-and-done college player.
