Quick Take: Noel shook up the recruiting game when he made the move back to the 2012 recruiting class. Syracuse and Kentucky were able to get him on campus quickly and many believe his ultimate decision comes down to the Orangemen and the Wildcats. He recently set a trip for Georgetown this coming Sunday and he has indicated that he will take trips to UNC and Connecticut at some point.
Recruiting: Syracuse, Kentucky, Georgetown, North Carolina, Connecticut

Quick Take: Shabazz Muhammd's situation is still in limbo. The top rated wing prospect in the 2012 recruiting class took recent visits to Kansas and Duke. To go with those two, UCLA, Kentucky and UNLV are in the hunt. Many believe it's more of a race between the Bruins and Wildcats, but Muhammad and his father – Ron Holmes – say they don't favor anyone. Muhammad's plan from the beginning to was to announce in April, they are still tracking to decide then.

Quick Take: Anthony Bennett narrowed his list of schools to five – Kentucky, Florida, Washington, UNLV and Oregon. It's my opinion that this race is more of a two-team race between the Wildcats and Gators. Word has it, Bennett, a 6-foot-7 power forward will take an official visit to Florida shortly after the season. Assuming that visit happens, I think we will know a lot more about his decision following that trip.

Quick Take: Arguably the top poker player in the 2012 class, Tony Parker rarely tips his hand. He recently took an official visit to Kansas for their match up with Missouri. Outside of a possible unofficial visit to Georgia, Parker appears done taking visits. Ohio State, UCLA and Kansas seem to be the most likely options and they each have their advantages. OSU and Kansas have made it clear to Parker their big men get touches on the block, while UCLA is pushing Korie McCray's connection to the five-star big man.

Quick Take: Amile Jefferson took is final visit this past weekend to Duke. By all accounts the visit went quite well and many believe the Blue Devils are the favorite here, despite jumping in to the recruitment a tad late. Villanova has always been intriguing because of the proximity to home and there have been times in his recruitment where N.C. State was considered his likely destination. Those appear to be the top three. Kentucky and Jefferson cooled not too long ago, so I don't expect him to end up in Lexington (Ky.).
Recruiting: Duke, North Carolina State, Kentucky, Villanova, Ohio State

Quick Take: Late last week Devonta Pollard led Kemper County to a 3A state title by scoring 28 points, grabbing 10 rebounds and blocking 10 shots. Now the 6-foot-7 forward will focus his attention to his recruitment. He's taken visits to Texas and Missouri and is in the process of setting up a few more trips. Don't expect a decision from Pollard anytime soon, as this deal could go into late April.

Quick Take: While a number of schools are recruiting Sampson, a four-star prospect, hard, three schools – Florida, Providence and Kansas -- are standing out above the rest. Sampson visited Kansas for their match up with Missouri and that trip went so well I'd categorize the Jayhawks as the team to beat. With that said, Sampson has indicated that he will visit both Florida and Providence so there's plenty of time for them to make up ground.
Recruiting: Florida, Kansas, Providence, St. John's

Quick Take: Information has been tough to come by on Savon Goodman. One of the top available wings, Goodman is still working to get eligible for the 2012 recruiting class. Should he make it in the 2012 class, Goodman will have a host of high major programs trying to get involved with his recruitment, as he's an athletic, tough and hard-nosed wing player.
Recruiting: Temple, Missouri, West Virginia, Gonzaga, USC, UCLA, Arizona, Texas, UNLV

Quick Take: After another school change mid-year, many question whether Graham will end up in college next season, due to academic issues. Graham, a four-star talent, is now at Creedmoor (N.C.) Christian Faith Academy and not much is known about his current recruiting situation.
Recruiting: Unavailable

Size: 7-9/225 |
Quick Take: UCLA and Harvard appear to be the firm leaders in the Edosomwan sweepstakes. Edosomwan, a senior at North Hollywood (Calif.) Harvard-Westlake, is currently waiting a qualifying test score to get into Harvard. Should he get that, Tommy Amaker's bunch seems to be the choice. If he doesn't, UCLA has positioned themselves nicely. California, USC and Washington are also involved in his recruitment. Recruiting: USC, Harvard, Washington, Texas, California

Size: 7-9/210 |
Quick Take: Obekpa is considering a host of schools including DePaul, St. John's, Providence, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Memphis, West Virginia and others. Obekpa, one of the top shot blockers in the 2012 class, took recent visits to Cincinnati, Providence, DePaul and Connecticut. Not one to tip his hand, a leader has been tough to figure out for Obekpa. We expect a college decision in early April.
Recruiting: Providence, DePaul, Cincinnati, Connecticut, West Virginia, Memphis, Cincinnati, St. John's, Seton Hall, Georgia Tech
