Joel Smith, 6-5 SF Lompoc (Calif.) High, told us recently that he's been hearing from Springfield College, Cal State Fullerton, Rider and Rutgers.
Asked if he had a leader, Joel said, "No, not yet. I'm still open."
Joel told us that he has no problem with leaving the West Coast. "I have family on the East Coast, so I'm fine with going away."
Joel will take the SAT on Saturday and hopes to sign in the fall.
