Rondo Is Top Unsigned Point Guard

Rajon Rondo, the top unsigned point guard in the country is making an unofficial visit this weekend. The Oak Hill star recently returned from a series of games in Spain.

This week in Barcelona, Spain, Oak Hill captured a tournament championship, laying claim to being the best high school team in the world. 6-1 point guard Rajon Rondo was a huge part of the run to the title.

Rondo had a career scoring day in one of the tournament games as he hit for 55 points. "We were only up by five going in halftime and Josh [Smith] got into foul trouble," Rondo said. "We had just seven guys and I just beat their pressure really easily. I shot the ball well in that tournament." In the game where he had 55, Rondo also tallied 14 assists.

This season has been somewhat of a breakout one for the Louisville native. Coming off a subpar summer, he's been Steve Smith's most consistent performer. Now, he's one of the country's most coveted guards.

"I don't know what it is. My coach just lets me play my game. Fast break, up-tempo, beat guys off the dribble and push the ball."

Right now, Illinois, Southern Cal and Georgia would take him. Each wants him to visit. This weekend he'll make an unofficial visit to Illinois.

"[Illinois] wasn't far from Louisville so they have a good game and they asked me to come up. They asked if I wanted to drive up and meet the players."

Rondo said that he'll likely visit Georgia officially as well but has scheduled no such visit to date. Regardless, he's got a plan for where he goes. "Wherever I go I plan on starting. Whoever is the best deserves to play and should play."

Right now, Rondo isn't focusing on recruiting, picking a school or watching who's in the stands. He's got a single-minded purpose right now: winning.

"Winning the championship is important. I already qualified so I don't have to worry about that. The next step is winning the championship at school."
