After leading the Elite Youth Basketball League in scoring – with no one even close to him – it’s clear Omar Calhoun will be able to make an immediate impact at the next level.

The 6-foot-5 Calhoun averaged 25.0 points in the 15 EYBL games, including a 38-point performance in April and a 31-point performance in the next-to-last game over Memorial Day weekend.

On Thursday, Calhoun took a surprise visit to Connecticut.

“He just finished,” Omar Calhoun Sr. said. “The visit went well.”

For several months, Calhoun has had a long list of schools under consideration, but that group has been trimmed.

According to his father, the schools Calhoun is focused on are North Carolina, Kentucky, Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Villanova, West Virginia, Seton Hall, Maryland and Georgetown.

“Those are the guys we built the best relationship with,” Calhoun Sr. said.

Calhoun, a shooting guard from Christ the King (N.Y.), has taken trips to North Carolina, Pitt, Villanova, Connecticut and Seton Hall.

No schools stand out in particular right now.

“All the schools I listed are on equal playing ground,” Calhoun Sr. said.
