Shipp Has Taken Off

He was among the players who improved his stock the most during the first half of the July evaluation period, and as you might expect, Los Angeles's <b>Josh Shipp</b> felt his recruitment pick up during the four-day off period...

We spoke with Josh Shipp, 6-5 SR SG Los Angeles (Calif.) Fairfax, recently, and asked him which schools had been calling him during the last week.

"UCLA, Oregon, Boston College, Washington, Arizona State, USC and Stanford have all been calling," said Shipp.

Shipp said no school has emerged yet as a leader. "I'm still wide open," said Shipp.

We asked if he had talked about official visits with the various schools and Shipp replied, "Most of them have told me they want me to take an official visit."

When we asked if there are any schools that he knows for sure he'll visit, Shipp said, "Probably Washington, Stanford, UCLA and Oregon – I'll visit those four most likely."

Shipp, who previously scored 1010 on the SAT, said he plans on taking the test again. He told us that he will likely sign in the fall.
