Pendergraph One To Watch

Jeff Pendergraph, a 6-8 junior power forward, has had coaches from the Big 12, Pac-10 and WCC attending his games and practices...

Jeff Pendergraph, 6-9 JR PF Etiwanda (Calif.) High, is a mobile big man with a nice upside. His skills are still developing, but he moves well and he may still be growing.

We spoke with Pendergraph recently and asked about the schools that are appealing to him.

"Washington, Pepperdine, Wisconsin, Marquette, UCLA -- those are some of the ones I've heard from," said Pendergraph.

A few schools have been out to Etiwanda games and/or practices. "Colorado, Arizona State and Pepperdine have been out," said Pendergraph.

We asked Pendergraph if he has any preference when it comes to location. "No, none at all" said Pendergraph. "I have no problem with going away."

Pendergraph said he isn't in a rush to make a decision. "I want to take my time and enjoy high school," Pendergraph said. "I haven't really thought about it much yet."

Pendergraph told us that his GPA is around 2.5 and he plans on taking the SAT in the spring.
