What a ride it has been for 2019 6’9 Lok Wur over the last few days. His name has been blowing up all over social media and throughout the college basketball world, as the former JUCO prospect is now garnering offers left and right, along with high-major interest.
Not long ago, Wur announced that he had become academically qualified and after averaging 21 points and 10 rebounds per game as a senior at Papillion-La Vista South, college programs from all around the country have been offering.
“Its been crazy the last few days,” Wur told Phenom Hoop Report. “I’ve been getting calls back to back all day. I’ve received several D1 offers. I’m excited and overwhelmed at the same time and also thankful.”
Over the last few days, Wur has been offered by Wofford, Eastern Michigan, Mercer, Texas A&M, Saint Louis, George Mason, Rutgers, DePaul, McNeese State, Omaha, Northern Colorado, Nevada, and Washington State.
And that is only in the last few days, with more expected to come. Programs really seem to like the thought of having his ability on the floor in the coming years, and it isn’t hard to see why.
“They (college coaches) really like my versatility and skill set, being a 6’9 guard,” he said.
Wur has also garnered interest from Kansas, Oregon, Virginia Tech, Creighton, Miami, St. Joseph’s and others as well, so that list could continue to expand even more.
As of right now, the 2019 prospect seems to be just holding on for the wild ride, as he continues to take his time and look at all the schools equally.
However, even though he is looking at all the schools equally, Wur plans on making a decision soon with a few key factors he has in mind.
“(I’m looking for a school that is) fast pace, where I can handle the ball and use my versatility to impact the game; more than just scoring,” Wur said. He then mentioned that he has plans on making a decision in the next 2-3 weeks, so it could be a quick turnaround.
As far as any upcoming visits, Wur will be heading to Oregon in a week, as well as Hawaii.
Wur has been one of the biggest names remaining for college programs and their 2019 class. And whoever is able to land the 6’9 guard, certainly will land a huge recruitment win late in the period while adding a versatile prospect to their roster for the next few years.
