“This was my first official visit and it will be my last one,” Paopao said. “I’ve decided for this to be my only visit because I want to focus on school with finals coming up and my travel team teammates because travel starts this week. So it would’ve been hectic to squeeze everything in.

“I’m talking to my family this week before I take off [for travel basketball]. Then I’ll have alone time this weekend to think about it. I’m probably going to make my decision next week sometime.”

Paopao, who stars at La Jolla Country Day in Oceanside (Cali.), has taken unofficial visits to Louisville, Duke, North Carolina, San Diego State and San Diego as well as this weekend’s official visit.
