A little basketball recruiting news, for those of you not subscribed to the Scout or Rivals premium forums:
Derrick Favors, the top-ranked high school senior basketball player in the country, plans to make an official visit to N.C. State next weekend.
He has trimmed his list to State, Georgia Tech, Georgia, Florida State, Kentucky and Memphis.
South Atlanta coach Michael Reddick said N.C. State is the only official visit that Favors has scheduled so far.
From all accounts I have read, Favors wants to make his decision by the early signing date.Â Obviously, adding Favors to NC State’s already strong 2009 commitments would go a long way towards building a serious contender in the ACC and nationally.
