Recruiting Update: Conti Makes Decision and Kelvin Amayo set to Visit

6-3 SG Evan Conti from Flushing, NY made his college choice on Sunday after a recruiting process that took a lot longer then he expected.  Despite putting up solid stats in one of the toughest leagues in the nation he never drew much attention from D1 programs.  Wyoming made an offer to him two weeks ago and he came to visit soon afterwards. 

Scott Duncan went to New York for a in home visit as well.  Last week Conti received a late offer from Quinnipiac a visited last week.  The Connecticut based Bobcats went 22-10 last year and finished second in the Northeast Conference.  For Conti the much closer school ended up being the better choice for him as he has decided to attend Quinnipiac according to the New York Post.

Not going to bash Conti for not choosing Wyoming.  Seems like a good kid and I'm glad that he can play ball at the highest level like he wanted.  Wyoming wasted no time in looking another recruit to fill that scholarship that Conti was offered.  It's another recruit from the Northeast named Kelvin Amayo a 6-4 200lb combo guard from NIA Prep in New Jersey.  Adam Zagoria says that Amayo will take an official visit to Laramie on Tuesday.

A highly recruited prep Amayo has great skills and plenty of offers to match.  It appears that Rice is in his leading choice right now but he also holds offers from Rutgers, Pitt, Seton Hall, Colorado and others.  Featuring a great first step  Amayo can get to the hoop very quickly.  He is still working on his jumper to balance out his game,  Rivals has him rated a three stars while ESPN ranks him as an 83.

According to his prep coach Rudy King:

"He is also making a commitment to be more consistent on the defensive end, which he has the ability to do at a high level because of his soccer background. He has extremely quick feet and once this happens we may be saying Kelvin’s name for years to come because he’s that talented." 

Wyoming is still waiting to hear from Boulder HS PG Riley Grabau who visited Western Kentucky last week.  He may take one additional visit before making a decision.  No timetable set for a decision from SF Larry Nance Jr. who visited Laramie on Friday.
