Stockhalper's Stocks is Hopping

A nice somewhat-hidden gem in the junior class is shooting guard Derek Stockalper from Carlsbad, Calif. Stockalper is one of the better shooters in the class and deceptively athletic...

Derek Stockalper, 6-4 SG Carlsbad (CA) High, spoke with us a while ago about some of the schools that he's been hearing from so far. He told us San Diego St., Gonzaga and Utah were the schools showing the most interest.

We asked if there were any schools he hadn't heard from that he was interested in and Derek said, "I'd like to hear from some of the Pac-10 schools."

Does that mean he wants to stay fairly close to home? "No, I'm open to going away," Derek said.

Derek also told us that he'd prefer to play in an uptempo style of play and academics would play a major role in his decision. He told us that he has a 3.6 GPA and scored 1190 on the PSAT.

Derek doesn't think he'll commit before the end of summer, but he plans on signing in the fall.
