Elliott Pitts, 6-4 JR SG Concord (Calif.) De La Salle, is one of the top wings in the west for 2013. A smooth scorer with a very good feel for the game, Pitts can knock down shots from the stripe and also has a solid mid-range game.
I spoke with Pitts recently and asked about the programs that are recruiting him.
"Cal, Portland, UC Davis, Santa Clara, Boston College, Arizona State and San Francisco have offered," said Pitts.
Pitts talked a little about the issues he will consider when he chooses a school.
"Academics will play a big role," said Pitts. "I want a good degree from a great school. I liked to play for a good coach. The location won't be important."
Pitts has already been to Santa Clara, Cal, Arizona State and USF. I asked if there are any other schools that he'd like to visit.
"I want to visit UCLA, Stanford and Georgetown hopefully," said Pitts.
Pitts said he has a 3.0 GPA and he anticipates making a fall decision.
