NEW YORK - Makai Ashton-Langford intends to cut his list soon but is also reiterating that three schools are working the hardest for his services.
"UConn, Louisville and Providence are showing the most love," the 6-foot-2 Brewster Academy point guard told SNY.tv Friday morning before Big Strick Classic practice at Gauchos Gym in the Bronx. "I'm probably going to wait to sign. I'm going to go on visits and we'll see where it goes from there.
"All three of them I think fit my playing style. All of the coaches have been talking to me a lot, and that's important. I want to have a good relationship with all the coaches. Who wouldn't want to be coached by Kevin Ollie, Rick Pitino and Ed Cooley?"
Ashton-Langford is in New York this weekend following a full July and first week of August. His Mass Rivals AAU squad went 21-0 in four tournaments in July, culminating with the adidas Summer Championships in Las Vegas.
On July 27, Ashton-Langford announced on Twitter that he was transferring from Cushing Academy to Brewster. He then participated in adidas Nations earlier this week in Los Angeles.
Ashton-Langford's Brewster team will be loaded, including St. Raymond's of the Bronx wing Sid Wilson, who reclassified to 2018. Class of 2017 wing Aaron Wheeler, a Stamford, Conn., native who formerly attended St. Andrew's School (R.I.) and is Ashton-Langford's Mass Rivals teammate, is transferring in, as are fellow-2017s Thomas Allen (Garner Road High School) and Michael Okauru, (Ravenscroft School).
"July was a huge grind," Ashton-Langford said. "After Vegas, my body was ready to give up, but this event will be a grind, too. I'm happy to be here, though."
