Singer has options

Sam Singer's recruitment took off following the first July evaluation period. caught up with the talented guard at the Peach State to see where everything stands.

The first two evaluation periods have been good to 6-foot-4 Florida native Sam Singer.

Singer has now reeled in scholarship offers from North Carolina State, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, Kansas State, Nebraska, Richmond and Davidson. Stanford, California, Wake Forest, Pittsburgh and Harvard are also involved.

"I'm enjoying it," Singer said of his recruitment. "My parents are definitely enjoying it. My mom gets to talk to all these different coaches. She's enjoy it, but it's getting a little hectic, but I'm just going along for the ride."

A number of programs have made him a priority in July and he's certainly paying attention to who is in the stands.

"I saw Richmond at every game and I saw Stanford at every game in Indianapolis," he said. "Virginia Tech was at every game. Cal was at every game and Kansas State was at every game. A lot of people are doing their best to show me that they really want me."

At this point, Singer hasn't set up any fall visits, but there is one school he's hoping to see again.

"I went out to Stanford and I'd like to go back out there," Singer told following a game during the second evaluation period. "Besides that, I don't know where I'm going to visit yet."

Once the evaluation periods end, Singer, a standout at Coconut Grove (Fla.) Ransom Everglades, will narrow his list and begin the visit taking process.

"Hopefully I decide in November," Singer said. "I want to cut it down to seven or five, at the end of August or early September. I'll take my visits and then hopefully make a decision."

At this point, Singer isn't sure what he's going to major in college, but he's leaning towards something that can help prepare him for coaching.

"Whatever leads me into coaching," he said. "I can go into anything. Haven't though about it yet."
