You might have last seen Austin Rivers (PG, 6’3″, 2011) standing on the sideline with his dad as the Boston Celtics mercilessly pounded the Los Angeles Lakers and walked away with championship banner number seventeen. The slender Rivers seemed to calmly take it all in as his dad tried to maintain some semblance of order amid the chaos.
But now it’s time to turn some of the spotlight on the younger Rivers, whose brother is already playing D1 ball. Alex asks him about his game and his college options in this interview with Rivers, who gives a breakdown of who’s offered and who he’s considering:
NB: What schools are you currently considering?
AR: Florida, right now. . . . University of Florida, that’s most likely.
NB: Is that your dream school?
AR: It’s one of them. I’ve always liked them and Texas, and North Carolina, and Kansas. Those are the . . . four right there.
NB: Who do currently have an offer from?
AR: Florida, [Central Florida], and . . . I’m going to try to go visit Memphis, Kansas, and Texas.
Of course, a lot of players list UNC and Kansas, but time will tell.
