    This is an excellent article about EJ and while I hope Brian Snow's CB is correct EJ states in this article that he is going to take all 5 official visits.

    The thing about being the best player in the state, a top 50 player in the country, a state champ and the reigning Mr. Basketball award winner, is there is going to be intense interest in your recruitment.

    And with that interest come the rumors, “inside information” and “sources” during the recruiting process. There have been a few rumored “leaders” over the last several months for the most heavily recruited player in Illinois, Belleville West star EJ Liddell.

    But if you take Liddell at his word, and if you listen to the coaching staffs that are recruiting him, you would be hard-pressed to believe that any rumor is true.

    That’s because the close-to-the-vest Liddell insists he doesn’t have a leader.

    So Liddell says he will continue to take his time in sorting out the long list of schools that are still actively recruiting him, though the four that continue to be talked about most prominently in the media –– you know, by those with “sources” –– are Illinois, Kansas State, Missouri and Ohio State.

    “This is the only time in my life I will be going through this,” says Liddell. “Most of the coaches know their limits and most have respected that. But I am really not close to making a decision.”

    He is close, however, to trimming his list. Liddell says he plans to cut his list soon after the Nike Skills Academy in California, Aug. 8-12. He also insists, at least right now, that he plans to take five official visits, so a top five should be forthcoming. A scheduled official visit to Ohio State has already been set for the first weekend in September.

    Simeon’s Jabari Parker is the only player in state history to win two Mr. Basketball awards; Liddell is the frontrunner to win it again after capturing the award as a junior last season.

    The list of superstar players who have led their teams to back-to-back big school state championships is a short one. Names like Parker, Derrick Rose, Shaun Livingston, LaPhonso Ellis and Quinn Buckner come to mind. Liddell can add his name to that list.

    He’s been an all-stater, state player of the year, state champion, a high-major recruit and among the top 50 players in the country. He’s already his school’s all-time leading scorer and is on pace to become one of only 22 players in state history to score 2,600-plus career points.

    I’m no expert by any means but I really liked this dudes film. He seems to just have an “it factor” that’s hard to pinpoint. But he has it.

    And I get a sense that landing him and his all around game just meshes so perfectly with the other pieces. Landing him just puts the cherry, whip cream and sprinkles on everything CH has done thus far. It’s hard not to get too excited about players like this seemingly being routine now for being legit potential players.

    There's a rumor that EJ Liddell and Mario McKinney want to be a package deal. If that actually happens, it is probably to Mizzou.

    But just taken individually, I do think OSU is the current leader for EJ.
