Devin Ebanks has announced the four schools he plans to visit and then decide where he will attend. The schools still in the running are Memphis, Rutgers, Texas and WVU. He also said that he is going to watch and see what happens with Indiana in the future. Indiana still has a slim chance to maybe sign him depending on what goes on in the near future with the program but unlikely. He plans to schedule the visits next month sometime for each school.
“I’m going to look for a school that had some of the same things I liked in Indiana. I want to go somewhere I can develop, play right away and have a great relationship with my coach.”
