SU Behind on Selby

Selby has been using his parents as a filter for visits and interviews. Josh has his mother doing his screening.

As mentioned here at The Fizz last month, Josh Selby had a much anticipated visit to Arizona this weekend.

The Fizz spoke to Bruce Pascoe of the Arizona Daily Star, who’s been all over the Selby buzz. Selby got in to Arizona late Saturday night.

“He attended the game on Sunday afternoon and seemed to be really watching it pretty intently.”

“Mo Mo Jones, one of the players here who had played some AAU ball with him, a kid from New York, actually made a couple of gestures to him in the stands during the game, like come play here with me.”

Not unlike Tobias Harris, Selby has been using his parents as a filter for visits and interviews. Josh has his mother doing the screening and Pascoe says she even shagged three-pointers for him in Arizona.

So after his decommitment from Tennessee, where is he headed next? Brace yourselves, Orange fans.

“They’ve got Kansas and Kentucky for sure, Connecticut is a maybe like the last week in February. And she said Syracuse they were still talking to and Indiana they were still talking to and they’re not sure about that.”

According to Pascoe, Arizona is well behind Kansas and Kentucky, but in the picture. The Orange (yes, despite that Camp Melo jersey you see) and Hoosiers are clearly lagging behind, but after so much trial and error, they aren’t rushing things.

“They’re taking it very slowly, and they’ve only got so much time because now he’s in his high school season so it’s possible that he’s gonna go down to the wire in April or May, it wouldn’t surprise me and maybe take a couple spring visits.”

It’s not time to panic, but the ‘Cuse needs to get moving if it wants this top guard in the class of 2010.
