"I got five schools," Rich said. "Just some schools didn't feel like it was the right fit and some had too many guards."
Rich said that the head coaches from Indiana and Southern Cal and that's different from the approaches of the other three schools. "Paul Hewitt makes it his business. Coach Smith calls as well as some of his assistants. Coach Hamilton calls and he's been down to the school."
And don't think Rich didn't notice who was in the stands in July. "I'd have to say that I've seen Georgia Tech, Kentucky and Florida State [the most]. After things picked up at Kentucky, there wasn't a game that they weren't represented by either Coach Smith or an assistant. Same with Georgia Tech and Florida State."
Rich has a very realistic timetable for his decision. "It's like a domino effect. There's a lot of great players out there who haven't committed yet. If I can get all my visits done after the first weekend of October, then I'm pretty sure I'll have my mind made up."
