Huggins visits Kennedy

Pittsburgh (Pa.) Schenley guard D.J. Kennedy was one of a handful of players who visited Kansas State the weekend of November 23. The 6-foot-5, 185-pounder returned home impressed with what he saw. Now, the three-star rated prospect is facing a decision deadline.

"Coach (Bob) Huggins was by to see me today," Kennedy said. "We really didn't have a lot of new stuff to talk about. He told me that they had been recruiting me hard and that they were wanting me to be a part of their program. He told me he felt it was time for me to make a decision. To decide if I wanted to be part of the K-State basketball program or not."

Kennedy, an all-state selection as a junior, was not able to give the first-year Wildcat coach an answer during their visit.

"He told me to let him know by Friday. I told him that wouldn't be a problem and that I would tell him what I was doing by then. I don't really have anything else that I'm looking at right now. I just don't know if I want to sign in the fall or not.

"I may want to wait until the spring to pick a school and see what all is there. I just don't know. I think there is a chance K-State could still be there for me as an option if I wait until the spring."

Kennedy said Huggins also visited three-star center DeJuan Blair today.

"Coach Huggins and DeJuan talked earlier in the day," Kennedy said. "I don't know how that went. We didn't talk about that during our visit this evening."
