Nwankwo Remains Undecided

Davis Nwankwo, the No. 58 prospect in America, let the early signing period come and go. There hasn't been much movement on his list but a few more schools are trying.

The last few days of the early signing period were quite confusing if you followed the recruitment of 6-10 center Davis Nwankwo of Georgetown Prep. First he was rumored to sign with Arizona. Then Stanford made a push and finally Miami nearly signed him at the 11th hour.

In the end, he didn't pen a letter of intent with anyone.

"I guess things didn't work out the way I wanted to so now I'm just going to concentrate on basketball and school," Nwankwo said. It's been no secret that he's favored Arizona in the process and his parents are pushing for Stanford.

Georgia Tech and Miami are also in the mix. This month, Georgia and Virginia Tech both came in to see him and could eventually get onto his "A" list. He's not ready to open his recruitment totally back up at this point but acknowledges that it's better to have interest from many schools. "In my mind, the schools that were already on my list will stay the same."

Though he's not ready to make a decision now, the process continues. "I think the most important thing will be to give Stanford a try. I'll try to look at it the way they're looking [at it]. If I give them a chance, I think they'll probably see where I'm coming. If I do that I think they'll look at it to see the perspective where I'm coming from."

Currently, Georgetown Prep is 4-0, having beaten Gonzaga 46-38 in the championship of the Gonzaga D.C. Classic. "We've got a lot of talent and anybody can score big on any day. We want to be nationally ranked and want to be in the Top Five."
