Two after Labissiere the hardest

Skal Labissiere, an elite recruit in the 2015 class, has high majors all over him, but two schools are showing the most interest.

Skal Labissiere, an elite 2015 recruit that will move into Scout.com's top 10 when rankings are updated, has a host of high major schools recruiting him.

Labissiere listed Kentucky, Memphis, UCLA, Georgetown, Tennessee, Kansas and Auburn at the EYBL Hampton event. But he said two of those schools are showing the most interest.

"Memphis and Kentucky are recruiting me the hardest right now," Labissiere told Scout.com. "Kansas jus started recruiting me."

"[They are] just getting in contact with me more than everybody else," he added about Kentucky and Memphis.

Labissiere, who plays his high school ball at Cordova (Tenn.) Evangelical Christian, has been by Memphis' campus a handful of times.

"I took some unofficial visits," Labissiere said when asked about Memphis. "That was pretty good. I went to their midnight madness. That was pretty good. That was fun."

Labissiere said Kentucky has been working to get him on campus and it's something he's looking into.

"We are thinking about it," he said. "We are working on it."

The 6-foot-10, 200-pound power forward said he would be looking at a variety of things when he starts examining the schools involved in his recruitment.

"Just the style of play, the coaches and the players there," he said.

"Slow pace sometimes," Labissiere added when pressed on what type of play he's looking for. "I want to play for a school that throws the ball in the post a lot and plays inside out."

Labissiere, who is playing with Team Penny on the spring and summer circuit, averaged 17 points, 8 .9 rebounds and 3.7 blocks a game during his sophomore season.
