Scout.com national recruiting analyst Dave Telep said news of a misdemeanor breaking and entering charge against Word of God point guard John Wall probably won’t have much of an effect on his recruitment.
"I think as long as things stay status quo and nothing else comes of this, I don't believe it will have much effect if any on his recruitment," Telep said.
The exception, Telep said, would be a coach who believes he isn’t going to get Wall anyway. Such a coach might use the charges as a convenient excuse to stop recruiting Wall, Telep said.
Schools that have a legitimate interest and shot at Wall will continue recruiting him, Telep said.
Raleigh police cited Wall, a senior who’s rated the nation’s top point guard prospect, on April 27. Duke and N.C. State are among eight schools Wall is considering.
