Kevin Gardner, 6-8 PF Palos Verdes (Calif.) Peninsula, told us the other day that St. Mary's and Loyola Marymount have both expressed interest in recruiting him, as well as a few Ivy League schools.
Cornell came in for an in-home visit recently and Kevin said the visit went well. Brown and Colgate are also due to come in soon.
We asked Kevin what he thought about the opportunity to go to an Ivy League school, versus the chance of possibly playing in the WCC. "I'm kind of split on basketball and academics 50/50," Kevin said. "It kind of depends on what my parents want to do, in terms of paying for the Ivy League."
Kevin said said playing time is an issue for him. "I want to go where I fit in on the team and playing time is a big factor, Kevin said. "I want to play right away, if possible."
As for the timing of his decision, Kevin said, "I'm not sure, but I think I'll probably wait until spring."
