Four-star Gardner taking MSU official visit

D.J. Gardner's recruitment is heating up and winding down all at the same time.

The four-star shooting guard has narrowed his list down to four schools and is in the process of taking his official visits to each of them this fall.

Gardner's final four in no particular order include Auburn, Memphis, Mississippi State and UTEP.

"The only school I've visited right now is Auburn," Gardner said. "Auburn showed me a good time down there. It was fun. I liked the atmosphere of their football game and the arena down there is amazing. Mostly I ate though. I just ate and walked around."

The 6-foot-6, 195-pounder from Okolona, Miss., visited the plains last weekend and will make the short trip to Mississippi State this weekend.

Gardner has visited the Starkville campus several times for football games and wants to see more of their basketball facilities on this trip.

"I'm expecting more than Auburn to make me come," Gardner said. "They've got to do something better than what Auburn did."

Gardner will wrap up his official visits with a trip to UTEP on Oct. 8 and trek to Memphis on Oct. 15.
