Lavine missed the majority of the July evaluation period when he tore a tendon from his hip bone.
"I'm going to be out about another three weeks, but then I will be able to start playing again," said Lavine.
Lavine is being recruited primarily by West Coast schools at this time.
I asked Lavine if any schools stand out for him at the moment.
"UCLA is my favorite," said Lavine. "I don't know if I should verbal yet, but I've been talking it over with my family."
When questioned about his thinking on the possibility of making a commitment, Lavine said, "I'm thinking I might want to get it over with, because I'm getting a lot of calls and UCLA has always been my favorite. But getting recruited does only happen once in your life, so that's something I'm considering as well."
I asked Lavine if he has any time frame in mind making his decision.
"It could happen any day or I could wait until my senior year," said Lavine. "I may just wake up one day and decide that I want to get it over with."
When asked about the possibility of taking unofficial visits, Lavine said, "I went down to UCLA a couple weeks ago. I visited with family and we went over to the campus. I may take an unofficial to Gonzaga at some point, but I don't have anything set up yet."
Lavine said the opportunity to compete at a high level is important to him.
"I want to go to a school that will be competing in the tournament with a chance to win a championship," said Lavine.
