6-3 Devonte Bandoo of Hutchinson JC, KS is a quiet person according to his coach Steve Eck so it’s not surprising he’s said little publicly about his recruiting, including his official visit to USC last weekend. But Eck did meet with him Monday night and got some insight from him regarding the weekend.
“He liked it, he likes Coach Martin, and that’s about it,” Eck said. “He said he enjoyed the visit, good guys and enjoyed Coach Martin. He likes South Carolina. He likes Coach Martin. I’ve known Coach Martin since he was at Kansas State and I think he’s a real good guy.”
The visit was the first official one for Bandoo. Eck said he thinks Bandoo is getting close to his decision but he’s not expecting anything this week. He did not know of any other visits he has scheduled.
Bandoo also has offers from West Virginia, Oklahoma, Houston, New Mexico and Buffalo. He’s also getting interest from Rutgers, Indiana, Wichita State, Baylor and Maryland.
As a freshman, Bandoo helped lead Hutchinson to the national championship for junior colleges. This past season he averaged 17 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists per game.
