Following his in-home visit Thursday with Kentucky coach John Calipari, Isaiah Briscoe will visit the school at some point but no date has been set, Roselle (N.J.) Catholic coach Dave Boff told SNY.tv.
“The visit went great,” Boff said. “He will visit there but no date set.”
As of now, the 6-foot-3 Briscoe is set to take officials to UConn (Sept. 26) and Missouri (Oct. 10). He may also trip to St. John’s the weekend of Oct. 17, the same weekend as Kentucky’s Big Blue Madness.
After meeting this week with coaches from Seton Hall, Missouri, Georgia Tech and now Kentucky, he will meet Monday with St. John’s coach Steve Lavin.
Briscoe previously told SNY.tv he plans to sign in the spring, meaning his recruitment could change over the next few months.
“I’m going to decide as late as possible,” he told me at the Elite 24. “l just want to sit back and just see who’s going to the NBA and things like that.”
Briscoe led the Playaz to a Peach Jam championship in July and also won gold with the USA U18 team at the FIBA Americas Championship.
Calipari met earlier Thursday with 2015 forward Cheick Dialloand 2016 guard Tyus Battle, who will visit for Big Blue Madness.
