Coaches line up to watch Jacob Epperson

LA PORTE, Ind. -- Jacob Epperson was one of the many prospects on display at the La Lumiere Academy Combine on Wednesday. The 6-foot-11 post player has brought in a wide range of interest and a host of schools were in to see him.

Any time intriguing post players emerge, college coaches usually don't waste much time trying to get involved.

That's what happened with Jacob Epperson over the summer and now with his move to La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere, the interest in him continues to grow.

That was evident on Wednesday, as over 35 college coaches made their way to Shane Heirman's combine. Now not every college coach was in attendance for Epperson, but he certainly had a strong contingent.

Among the head coaches in to see Epperson were Illinois' John Groce, Marquette's Steve Wojciechowski and Toledo's Tod Kowalczyk. There were also assistants from TexasNorth CarolinaIndianaNew MexicoCreightonKent StateMichigan State.
