ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — 6-foot-10 senior also looking at Arizona, Maryland, UConn, others
Alex Kirk, one of the most highly-recruited high school basketball players to come out of the state in years, is scheduled to make an official recruiting visit with the University of New Mexico men’s basketball team this weekend.
The 6-foot-10 Los Alamos senior is one of the country’s top-rated big men. He has had offers from big-name schools across the nation, but recently trimmed his list to a group of schools that includes UNM, according to his father Alan Kirk.
“I don’t know if it’s close to a final five yet,” says Alan, who is also the head coach at Los Alamos High. “But he’s concentrating on the schools that are the most interested in him. I’d says that’s Oregon State, Arizona State, Arizona, UNM, West Virginia, UConn, Maryland, SMU, Minnesota, Texas and Arkansas.”
