One of the top shooters on the West Coast in 2017 is Jordan Schakel, a 6-foot-5, 180-pound shooting guard from Torrance (Calif.) Bishop Montgomery.
Schakel has grown in height and skill level over the past several months and he's evolved into a guy who is in the right direction.
"I've been getting stronger," Schakel said. "I've worked on my shot and I'm quicker. I've learned how to guard the 1-5 on defense."
Schakel, who has offers from USC and Rice, says four programs are recruiting him the hardest and he broke down what he likes about each of them.
Stanford: "I like how great the academics are, the location of the campus and the opportunity that Stanford provides."
California: "It's a wonderful academic place, they're going to be really good this year and it's just a great place."
USC: "It's right here in LA, they have great academics and both my parents went there."
Rice: "It's a great academic school and I have friends who go there so it would be a fun place to play."
He has a good idea of what he'll be looking for in a school.
"I want a great academic place and a system that fits how I play; strong on defense, moves the ball and plays together," Schakel said.
