Two-star recruit Cedric Hankerson is keeping his options open after his first official visit with the Minnesota Golden Gophers, according to a report from the Pioneer Press. The shooting guard out of Coral Reef High School in Miami has a scholarship offer from Oklahoma State, will visit Boston University on Sept. 14, and says it is "probable" that he will visit Virginia Tech and Pennsylvania.
The 6-foot-4, 190-pound guard was noncommittal in his comments about Minnesota, saying "anything can happen" in regards to his decision and adding:
"I know (the Gophers) play in a great conference with a high level of competition against schools like Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State," Hankerson said. "I wouldn't mind being a part of that."
During his visit Hankerson attended a football game, where he was impressed with the fan atmosphere, and spoke to current Gopher basketball players Andre Hollins and Maverick Ahanmisi as well as head coach Tubby Smith. Smith told Hankerson he envisions the Gophers as a running team, something that would play directly into Hankerson's strengths.
