2005 Focus: Brett Hoerner

Brett Hoerner is a skilled big man from Fullerton (Calif.) High and he's drawing considerable interest from high major programs. We spoke with his mother recently and got an update on his recruitment...

We spoke with Pat Hoerner, mother of Brett Hoerner, 6-10 JR C Fullerton (Calif.) High, the other night about her son's recruitment.

"He's been hearing from a lot of schools," said Mrs. Hoerner. "UCLA, North Carolina, Arizona, Louisville, Kansas...he's getting interest from schools all over."

When we asked if any school stands out at this time, Mrs. Hoerner said, "He likes UCLA. He's been there twice. He went to a practice three weeks ago and he toured the campus with his father back in September."

Mrs. Hoerner went on to say, "Brett used to talk about Duke, but when UCLA fired Lavin, Brett started liking them. And his father Bill has always been high on UCLA, since he went to school there."

We asked Mrs. Hoerner about other schools that might get a visit and she replied, "Well, I used to live in Arizona, and still have relatives there, so I may have to take Brett for a visit out there."

Mrs. Hoerner said that Brett currently has a GPA "around 3.0"
