John Wall doesn't have a leader any more.
The 6-foot-4 Raleigh Word of God basketball point guard said Wednesday that Memphis is no longer the leader among the schools he was considering after coach John Calipari resigned to take the head coaching job at Kentucky.
"I just don't have a leader now," Wall said. "I have to see what is going to happen now."
Wall said Monday that Memphis was the leader among the schools that he was still considering — Memphis, Baylor, Duke, Kansas, Miami and N.C. State.
The top-ranked player in the country by rivals.com said he had not spoken with Calipari since the coaching change, but he did speak to Calipari on Tuesday.
Wall was emphatic that Kentucky was not his leader at this point.
"I don't have a leader right now," he said.
He said he visited Kentucky unofficially last summer and was familiar with the program. As for Memphis, he said he hadn't ruled it out.
"I need to wait and see who it names as head coach," he said.
He has no timetable to make his decision.
DeMarcus Cousins, one of the nation's top-ranked big men in the country, had committed to Memphis but has not officially signed. He is free to sign with any team.
Xavier Henry, the top-ranked shooting guard in the country, has signed with Memphis but told reporters at the McDonald's All-American Game in Miami that he had an agreement with Memphis that would allow him to switch schools.
