LeBron: Final Notebook

AKRON, Ohio -- Scout.com talked to Rodney Purvis, Adam Woodbury and Terry Rozier about their recruitments, as well as a handful of other top notch prospects.

Purvis plans August decision

Rodney Purvis is looking to announce his college choice in August.

The nation's No. 10 prospect said he has firmly narrowed his list of schools to Duke, Missouri and North Carolina State. He's taken unofficial visits to all three schools involved.

Purvis, who was once committed to Louisville, said the coaching change at N.C. State was impactful in his recruitment.

"That made a huge impact when coach Gottfried came in," he said. "...once he got there it was kind of a dream come true to have the local school recruit me."

The five-star prospect said he is planning to make his college choice soon after the July evaluation period.

"My and my mom talked about it," he said. "I'm going to do it in August."

Woodbury is a top tier recruit

College coaches are making Adam Woodbury a priority.

After an impressive spring, Woodbury capped it off with an MVP performance at NBA Camp. Now the 7-footer from Iowa has his pick of schools.

Before NBA Camp Iowa, Minnesota, Stanford, Ohio State and Wisconsin were showing strong interest, while Kansas and UNC were dabbling with the big man.

Now Carolina, Duke, Kansas, Texas and Florida are recruiting him with similar intensity.

The four-star prospect made it clear he isn't rushing the process and that he didn't have a list of favorites. He said his schedule likely wouldn't allow unofficial visits either.

"I don't plan on taking unofficial visits, but I will take officials."

Will Rozier stay close to home?

Terry Rozier, of Shaker Heights (Ohio) High, was the talk of LeBron camp.

After a so-so spring with All-Ohio Red, Rozier, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound lead guard, put together a great event, showing an ability to knock down long-range shots and create for his teammates.

He admitted that he's been playing especially hard for the college coaches in attendance.

"I've never really had an opportunity to play in front of this many head coaches," Rozier said.

Well he's made quite the impression on them. While he was already beginning to gain high major interest, many more are soon to come after his effort this week.

Among the schools currently involved are West Virginia, Illinois, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Georgia, Cleveland State, Oklahoma State, Boston College and Louisville.

Rozier said he's considering staying home. If he does he said it would be Cleveland State or Cincinnati.

"I'm 51-percent going to go away and 49-percent on staying home," Rozier said. "Cleveland State did put two guys in the league in three years."

*Troy Williams said Alabama, DePaul, USF, Miami, Georgetown and Virginia have offered him a scholarship. He also mentioned Louisville, North Carolina, Duke and Kentucky.

*J-Mychal Reese said Kasnas, Baylor, Providence, Louisville, Oregon, Texas and Texas A&M are the schools involved in his recruitment. He said he wants to visit Kansas, Louisville and Oregon soon.
