Butler, Diogu To Decide Soon

Two prominent members of the Class of 2002 will likely make decisions this week. In no particular order, Keith Butler and Ike Diogu will decide this week about their futures.

Decisions Looming This Week

Philadelphia (PA) Celestial Prep center Keith Butler is on the verge of making a decision. "It'll be sometime this week, probably Wednesday or Thursday," Prep coach Darryl Schoefield said. "He wants the best possible scenario and playing time."

Butler will decide between Temple, Cincinnati and Illinois. The word on the streets is that the Owls have made some moves up the list. North Carolina and Miami-FL are no longer in the picture.

Down in Garland, Tex., big Ike Diogu is holding a few schools at bay. On Sunday, he said that Illinois was out of the picture and he's down to Arizona State and UConn. Diogu's been struggling with a decision for 10 days and trying to predict this one has been difficult.

Arizona State has been at the top of the list the entire time. Our sources tell us that his mind changes often. However, a decision is now anticipated by Wednesday morning.
