Leaders For O'Neil

Dwight O'Neil, a solid guard prospect from Fresno, says four schools are currently at the top of his list...

Dwight O'Neil, 6-3 JR SG Fresno (Calif.) Washington Union, told us yesterday that his four top schools at the moment are Pacific, USC, UNLV and Fresno St. All four schools have been out to see O'Neil at his high school.

We asked O'Neil which schools have been recruiting him the hardest and he replied, "Fresno St. and UNLV."

O'Neil said he'd prefer to stay in the west. "I have family all over -- in Fresno, Vegas and Stockton. I want to go to a good program and I'd like to stay in the west."

Playing time may also play a role in O'Neil's choice. "I'd like to play early -- that could be a big factor," said O'Neil.

O'Neil didn't have a particularly great weekend shooting the ball, but said he plans to get better in that area. "I've been doing track -- high jump, triple jump and long jump -- and my shot is a little off," said O'Neil. "I'm going to work on that."

O'Neil said his GPA is 2.7 and he'll take the SAT on Saturday.
