Five Remain In 2011 Top 100

Just five prospects in Scout.com's top 100 are still available. Here's a recap where the Ben McLemore, DeAndre Daniels, Angelo Chol, Otto Porter and Trevor Lacey stand.

There isn't much left in the class of 2011.

College coaches are searching high and low for new names to possibly recruit, but for the most part there haven't been many names emerge.

Differing from the past few seasons only five top 100 prospects – Ben McLemore, DeAndre Daniels, Angelo Chol, Otto Porter and Trevor Lacey -- are still available as we enter the New Year.

MeClemore, a standout at Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill, has his list down to Missouri and Kansas. He's taken official visits to both schools and is expected to make an announcement in the near future.

In early December, McLemore stated that he had intentions of sitting down with his family while home for the holiday break. His initial plan was to make his decision shortly after going back to school.

McLemore visited Kansas and Missouri this past week. His former AAU coach, who accompanied McLemore to Missouri, told ShowMeMizzou.com that he may not announce until April.

Daniels, Scout.com's No. 35 prospect, is basically down to three schools – Kentucky, Kansas and Texas.

The 6-foot-7 forward, who played the first semester at Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy, intends to enroll in January to the school he chooses. Despite the early enrollment, Daniels doesn't plan to play until the start of next season.

Daniels, a native of California, recently took official visits to the three schools involved. Texas received his last visit.

Chol, who is ranks No. 43 overall, has his list down to Alabama, Arizona, Kansas, North Carolina and Washington.

Alabama and Kansas received early official visits. He was on North Carolina's campus this past weekend and he has visits set up to Arizona for the end of January and Washingtin in mid-February.

The plan for Chol is to announce on February 17th.

While Chol has been a household name for quite some time, Porter, who ranks No. 49 overall, has not.

At the Marshall County Hoopfest in early December, Porter his versatility and skill set and catapulted into the rankings. A week later at an event in Missouri, the Sikeston (Mo.) High standout was just as impressive.

College coaches have certainly take note. But it appears his recruitment hasn't changed much. Per sources, schools across the country have attempted to get involved, but many were told the prospective school was "too far."

While there hasn't been much by way of information out of the Porter camp, it's clear that Mike Anderson and Missouri are at or near the top of his list. He took an official visit to Missouri and they were among the first schools in the mix.

Georgetown was involved early on, as was SE Missouri. Porter has made it clear he doesn't intend to announce until the end of his high school season.

Lacey, who is having a great senior season, has his list trimmed to Alabama, Auburn, Connecticut, Kansas and Kentucky.

Ranked No. 63 overall, Lacey is the highest rated available shooting guard and he doesn't appear to be in any kind of hurry to make his college choice. In fact, he hasn't taken any official visits.
