Ebuka Anyaorah may still end up playing basketball for Colorado, but not before he explores a few more options.
The North Gwinnett senior visited Georgia on Thursday and then spent the night in Athens. He also plans an official visit to Texas A&M on April 10, opening up his recruitment to those schools after a de-commitment from Colorado.
Anyaorah gave a non-binding verbal commitment to the Buffaloes late at night March 19, and the news became public the following day. Within a day later, he backed off his commitment.
"(His parents) wanted him to think the process out a little more," North boys basketball coach Len Garner said. "He felt he made a rushed decision so he de-committed within 24 hours (of his original commitment)."
Garner said he expects the 6-foot-4 guard to choose between Georgia, Texas A&M and Colorado after his visits are complete. He can't officially sign with a college until the spring signing period begins next month.
Anyaorah also has offers from Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Michigan, Oklahoma, Auburn and others, part of a recruiting surge for his services based on a stellar senior season.
North's all-time leading scorer averaged 26.3 points, second in the county, and 8.3 rebounds as a senior.
