Drew sorting it out

Lindsey Drew has heard from a number of schools since decommitting from Arizona State. Where does the 2015 point guard stand in his recruitment?

Two weeks ago, 6-foot-3, 160-pound Los Angeles Fairfax point guard Lindsey Drew opened up his recruitment after previously being committed to Arizona State, following the dismissal of Sun Devils head coach Herb Sendek.

The previous plan for Drew was to reclassify to 2016 before heading to Tempe, but now that he has more options, he's staying in 2015 and attending college next year.

"It's just 2015 now," Drew said. "The only reason I was 2016 before is because coach Sendek didn't have a scholarship for 2015 and I really felt comfortable at ASU."

Since decommitting from Arizona State, Drew has heard from a number of schools, with four standing out.

"USC, California, Nevada, Tulsa, Long Beach State, Saint Mary's and Oregon State have all reached out," said Drew. "I'm leaning towards USC, Cal, Saint Mary's and Nevada at the moment.

"I've been having my dad talk to a lot of the coaches. I have three visits left and I'm trying to decide which schools to see."

Drew is still open to going to Arizona State, should Bobby Hurley choose to recruit him.

"They're in consideration," he said. "I know they hired (Hurley) and there will be some of the same staff. I have a good relationship with Stan Johnson. I still feel comfortable with ASU, I just need a relationship with the new coach."

Two schools that Drew hopes to see are also in the Pac-12 in USC and Cal.

"I plan on seeing USC unofficially," Drew said. "Being from L.A. you grow up with USC and UCLA. I'm interested to see what it's like there.

"I was with my dad last week going through all the schools, pros and cons, and Cal seems like one of the better situations I could be in if I went there."

Drew, who doesn't have any visits set up but hopes to take one next week, doesn't have a timetable on when he'll make a final decision.

"I don't have a date or anything," he said. "I'm just looking to feel comfortable somewhere."
