A few months ago Arizona was a clear leader, but as of now he's listing North Carolina, Arizona, Kentucky, Kansas, Duke, Texas, and Connecticut as his top schools and has also heard from Florida, Texas A&M and Cal.
"I'm really open to all schools that will let me play the three and the four," Santee said. "Those are just some off the top of my head."
Arizona may not be the leader at this time, but that doesn't mean that Santee isn't very interested in continuing the trend of Houston Hoops players pledging to the Cats.
"I love their style of play, and I love Lute Olson, and Josh (Pastner)," he confessed.
One knock against Santee has been a lack of consistency. He'll be huge in one game, then struggle in another. That was a bit evident a week ago in Las Vegas, where he really didn't string two good games in a row together.
"I feel like I could have done a lot more to help my team and the game wouldn't have been so close," Santee said after the Hoops won the Las Vegas Spring Showcase. "So I just need to go home and work on a lot more of the things I need to work on."
What's funny is that most scouts feel Santee needs to get better down low to become a complete low post player, but Santee does not see it that way.
"I need to work on my outside game the most," Santee said. "Shooting, dribbling, and perimeter defense."
Santee is a nice prospect, but probably needs a big summer to cement offers from the elite programs on his list. He has a lot of skills, but really needs to shed the tag as a "tweener".
