The chat apparently left an impression on Lancona. His father, Sean, says K-State is now one of four schools Lancona is considering. Lancona will take an official visit to K-State next weekend (May 3-5).
He is also considering St. Louis, which he will visit this weekend, along with Colorado State and BYU.
Here is Lancona’s recruiting profile at ESPN.com. Here is one of his highlight videos . The Tesoro High School big man originally signed with Washington State, but the school released him from his National Letter of Intent last month for what was classified as a “mutual decision.” Lancona’s father said college coaches have been calling him non stop since.
Lancona averaged 19 points and eight rebounds as a high school senior. He has the ability to score inside and shoot from the perimeter.
K-State could use another post player after the transfer of Adrian Diaz. Thomas Gipson, D.J. Johnson and newcomer Neville Fincher are the only big men currently on the roster.
