I spoke with Stanback recently and asked about the schools that are recruiting him.
I asked Stanback if he has a sense for which schools have been recruiting him the hardest.
"UCLA and Uconn," said Stanback.
I asked Stanback what the Bruin staff has been telling him.
"They told me they really like me and that I'd be a good fit there," said Stanback.
Stanback has a favorable impression of Uconn.
"They really good," said Stanback. "I like the coach and how he runs things. They have good chemistry."
When asked if he has a favorite, Stanback replied, "No, I haven't really decided yet. I'm keeping my options open."
I asked Stanback about the factors that will be important to his choice.
"How the school is academically, because I really think education is important," said Stanback. "Someplace where I can fit in and have a good relationship with the coaches. Early playing time isn't really that important – as long as they give me a chance."
When asked if location will be important, Stanback said, "No, I'll really go anywhere."
I asked Stanback if his family has any preference.
"They kind of want me to stay close to home," said Stanback.
Stanback said he anticipates choosing a school sometime early in his senior year and signing in the early signing period.
