January has leader

2012 small forward Anthony January has a leader. He talks to Scout.com about that school and who else is recruiting him.

There's a clear leader for 6-foot-7, 196-pound home schooled Southern California 2012 small forward Anthony January.

"UTEP," January said, "My father went there and I just feel at home. When I was a freshman I went there and I liked it."

Despite leaning towards UTEP, January says he's not ready to make any decisions yet.

"I'm open but I really like UTEP," he said. "I may lean towards UTEP but I'm not sure yet."

Beyond UTEP, January says he's hearing from UCLA, Oregon, Kansas and Washington. He's not currently planning on making a decision anytime soon.

"I think I'll narrow it down my senior year but I'm not sure yet," he said. "I'll see how things go."

January is happy with the strides he's made in his game over the past year.

"I've improved everything," he said. "My jumper is looking good, I can shoot off the dribble and my ball handling got pretty good."

There are a couple things that January would like to improve at.

"I need to get stronger and work on my mental toughness on the court," January said.
