Black shares the latest

Five-star forward LeRon Black is taking a long look at his current recruitment, and he has no shortage of impressive options.

One of the hottest commodities in the class of 2014 is Memphis (Tenn.) White Station forward Leron Black. The five-star prospect recently decided to re-open his recruitment and now many schools are making their way down to check out Black, and he has no shortage of options.

White Station came home with the district title and in the process Black was a monster. The 6-foot-7 forward averaged over 26 points and 14 rebounds per game. Overall Black says the season was good, but not exactly what he hoped.

"It was an alright season," said Black. "We played alright in the districts but then we had a letdown, so it didn't go as well as we hoped."

He continued, "I am just going to keep working and getting better. I don't think I had a bad season it was pretty good, but I know I have to keep on working on everything to be the best I can be."

When it comes to his recruiting, Black says that many of the top schools have stopped by this high school season to watch him.

"Illinois, Wake Forest, Ohio State, Kansas, North Carolina State, Minnesota, Connecticut, Florida, Florida State, all of them have been to the school or at a game since I opened up my recruitment," Black noted.

One school that has made sure to be very active is Illinois. The Fighting Illini have been down several times, and they are making it known to Black that he is a major priority.

"It seems like it is a cool place and a cool school," said Black of Illinois. "I like the energy that Coach (John) Groce has and Coach (Jamall) Walker is a real cool guy. We talk a lot, so they are real cool and they are showing me a lot of attention.

Also the Kansas Jayhawks have really picked it up with Black, and he likes what he is hearing from that staff.

"It is nice that they came up to see me," Black explained of KU. "It is good to know that they want to recruitment and everything since they are one of the top programs in the country."

One of the schools that has been recruiting Black the longest is Ohio State. In fact the Buckeyes could be down to see him once again in the near future.

"I like Thad Matta, he is a real nice guy and Coach (Dave) Dickerson who is recruiting me is real cool and everything," said Black. "I think they are supposed to come down on Friday, but I am not. It is nice that they have been interested in me since before I committed the first time."

For now Black remains wide open in the process and is open to any and every school that is willing to recruit him. This time around he plans to take his time in the process and wait until at least after the summer before making any kind of decision.
