NBPA: Comanche has two recruiting hardest
It was a productive week at the NBPA Top 100 Camp for 6-foot-11, 200-pound Los Angeles View Park 2015 center Chance Comanche. Here's Scout.com's evaluation of Comanche from the event: Even though he's a 2015 prospect, Comanche gives up a lot of weight so the points he gets are often based on his size, length and developing skill set. When Comanche gets stronger, he'll be able to finish through contact even better, but you can see the development of his skill set, most notably his jumper, which continues to gain range. Comanche fought for rebounds on both ends and was especially effective on the offensive glass. Comanche is happy with how he performed at the camp and the way his game is coming along. "I'm learning a lot here," Comanche said. "The coaches are really good; they know what they're talking about. I'm satisfied with how I've played but I know I can keep improving. "I'm getting better; I'm shooting out to three now and I'm starting to push the ball up the court when I'm open. I can do more pick and pop now too." While Comanche listed Arizona, N.C. State, UCLA, UConn, Arizona State and USC as schools he's hearing from, there are two he feels are recruiting him the hardest. "Probably Arizona and N.C. State," Comanche said. The five-star prospect broke down what he likes about those two schools. Arizona: "It's a good school and team. They're run and gun, Sean Miller is a great coach and I like coach (Joe) Pasternack; they're good guys." N.C. State: "Coach (Mark) Gottfried is a nice guy and I get along with them. The team seems like they get along well and plays well together." Comanche has a feel for a couple programs he'll be taking visits to. "I'm visiting UConn right after camp and I think I'll visit Arizona on an official visit in September," he said. The center's current plan is to take his time before making a decision. "I'll probably decide towards the spring," Comanche said. "I just want to see what happens in case a coach leaves or something. I don't want to choose the wrong school by accident." Location won't play a factor in Comanche's decision, he said, but he will look at a couple other qualities in a program. "I'll look at style of play and how I fit into the team and school," he said
