Stockalper's Stock at ABCD

Derek Stockalper, 6-5 SR SG, Carlsbad (Calif.) High, has seen his recruitment pick up this spring, and even in the last week since he's been at the adidas ABCD camp.

"I've heard that Stanford could be interested," Stockalper said. "I'm also hearing from Pepperdine, Loyola Marymount, Gonzaga, Utah, San Diego State and San Diego."

Stockalper also is considering attending an Ivy League school, carrying a 3.6 GPA and having scored an 1130 on his SAT. "If you have the opportunity to go to an Ivy League school like Yal, geez, it's hard to pass up," he said.

With some new recruiting attention coming his way, though, Stockalper said he has quite a bit to consider. "It will take me a while to really think about it. I have to see who really is serious about recruiting me. Right now I have offersfrom Utah and San Diego State."

Stockalper, who averaged 22 points a game last season, said he intends to get all of his information gathered, take some official visits, and be able to make his decision by the fall signing period.
