Kyle Singler: "Not anytime soon"

At one point it looked as if Kyle Singler was whittling down his list of schools and a decision could be coming soon. That does not seem to be the case. A few weeks back Singler insisted that there were more than two schools on his list. This weekend his father confirmed that.

After a recent visit to UCLA with fellow Oregon standout Kevin Love, many assumed that the Bruins were in the driver's seat. As recently as February the Portland Oregonian said it was a two-team race with Duke, but that may not be the case.

Scout.com caught up with Kyle's father and he made it clear that the 6-8 forward was in no hurry to pull the trigger. When asked if Kyle was considering making a decision, Mr. Singler said, "Not anytime soon."

When asked if there was a time frame for a decision, he said, "He'll go through spring and summer, and probably take a couple of official visits in fall."

When asked what schools Kyle would possibly visit officially, he said: "We don't know yet. He's been on some campuses already (UCLA and Duke), and I don't know whether he'd want to take an official visit back to those. He hasn't been to Kansas or Arizona, and those are two schools he's still interested in."

Singler, a 2007 standout from Medford, OR, is a very versatile forward with great floor sense. He has reminded many of former Oregon standout Luke Jackson in that he can play either forward spot and is able to both score and rebound. He is also a terrific passer, who is not afraid to spread the ball around as well as fill it up.

Kyle and his brother E.J. attended the two NCAA sessions in the Oakland Regional Thursday and Saturday, watching UCLA win the Regional Saturday against Memphis and stage the dramatic comeback against Gonzaga.

WILDCAT INSIDER SLANT: It seems as if the Bruins are still in great shape and Duke is probably right up there, but it is encouraging for Wildcat fans to read that Singler is still considering the Cats. They may have some ground to make up, but it is very early in the process and there is time to make a run at the talented wing.
