I think that's all coming from the fact that the only coaches that have been reported as visiting Oriakhi are X, Mizzou, and UK... maybe?

Zagoria goes into it in this post from three days ago:

Alex Oriakhi Meets With Kentucky, Xavier & Mizzou (UPDATED)

Over the last couple of days, UConn junior power forward Alex Oriakhi met at his Lowell, Mass., home with Kentucky coach John Calipari, Xavier coach Chris Mack and Missouri coach Frank Haith.

Sounds decent, but I had also heard that Duke and UNC dropped out of the picture. Apparently that's not true though:
Oriakhi said he’s also considering North Carolina and Duke and reports that Duke was out are untrue.

I never said they were out,” he said. I’m talking to North Carolina and Duke as well. I’m pretty sure visits are going to come in the future. I don’t want to miss classes.”

Oriakhi said Washington was out basically because, “Why go that far?”

Either way, sounds like it will be a little while before we hear anything:
“I really don’t have a timetable. It’s not something Im going to rush, either.

“Probably by the end of the month.”
