John Wall, the nation's top prep point guard, says he wants to play college basketball next season and is not considering a jump to the NBA.
"That's just a rumor about me going to the NBA. I don't know how that got started," said Wall via telephone Thursday before practice in New York for the Jordan Brand Classic Saturday night.
Kentucky is one of several schools that the Raleigh, N.C., player is considering.
"I still really don't know where I am going or when I will make a decision," Wall said. "I have a lot of good options out there, but I still just don't know for sure what I want to do."
Wall admits there would be one big plus to playing for Calipari at Kentucky.
"He does a great job with getting guards ready to play in the NBA," Wall said. "He knows what he is doing, and I respect that. That's why Kentucky has a great shot at getting me even though I am still open in my recruiting."
