RJ Hampton, the 6-foot-4 point guard from Little Elm (TX) High School, spoke with Rivals on Wednesday about his recent visits to Baylor, Duke, Kansas, TCU, and Texas. He broke down each school:

Baylor: “I like that they are good every year. Coach [Scott] Drew just finds a way to make it work. They’ve made Sweet Sixteens and Elite Eights and they love to compete. When I’ve been down there at practice that’s what he preaches, to compete.”

Duke: “I went for their Countdown to Craziness and it really is [a] countdown to craziness. Their fans are crazy and Coach K [Mike Krzyzewski] and the program he runs is great. He has a hall of fame program and he’s a hall of fame coach so just being in the atmosphere with him was mind-blowing.”

Kansas: “Kansas was a great visit. I went up there for their Late Night and the atmosphere was great. It’s really a basketball school. Coach [Bill] Self and Coach [Jerrance] Howard really made me feel like I was at home on my unofficial visit. They took me all around and showed me everything so it was real fun.”

TCU: “I think Coach [Jamie] Dixon is doing a great job with turning it around. There’s a lot of in-state guys and they are trying to be a top caliber program so what he’s doing there is great. All of the players are buying into the system.”

Texas: “Coach [Shaka] Smart prides himself on family. With them, it’s just that they love to compete and love to win. They are trying to turn it around and get back to what they’ve been.”

Hampton also spoke about eventually cutting his list after the summer of 2018, once he sees who else offers. “It’s really a to be determined thing,” said Hampton about his recruitment timeline. “I’m going to listen a lot to my dad because he’s been through it before. It’s about what he’s feeling and what I’m feeling about schools and I think I will probably cut my list heading into my junior year.”

According to 247Sports, Hampton is ranked as the No. 5 overall player in the Class of 2020 and the No. 1 player from the state of Texas.
