#AskCoachB: Where will Looney end up?

Want to ask ESPN RecruitingNation national recruiting director Paul Biancardi a question about basketball recruiting? Tweet it to @PaulBiancardi using the hashtag #AskCoachB.
I recently spoke with Kevon Looney about his recruiting and the recruiting process. Last week he came back from an official visit to Florida and has a great time with the staff and players.
"I like the vision the coach Donovan has for the program and how I will fit in," Looney said.
After watching individual workouts and being on campus for 48 hours, Looney also came away with his eyes wide open on how much time college players have to invest into each day. Next up this weekend he will be heading to Duke with visits scheduled to Tennessee (Sept. 20), UCLA and Michigan State in October. He also plans on making a second unofficial to Wisconsin. "I plan on taking all my visits," Looney said.
Looney currently stands as the No. 9-ranked player in the ESPN 100, a forward with a combination of great athletic ability, length and skill who can score from the high post and short wing area. He needs to engage himself more with his rebounding and not stand on the perimeter too long as well as continue to work on a his low post game to have a balanced scoring attack.
More importantly he is a good student and high character young man who will shine on any college campus. Look for him to make his college decision before the early signing period.
