Leavitt Down To Three

Coby Leavitt has Big West and WCC programs remaining on his list of three...

We spoke with Carol Leavitt, mother of Coby Leavitt, 6-9 SR C/PF St. George (Utah) Snow Canyon, recently and got an update on her son's recruitment.

"Cal Poly, UC Santa Barbara and Pepperdine are the three main schools now," said Mrs. Leavitt. "(Cal Poly head coach) Kevin Bromley was here for an in-home visit a couple weeks ago and that went very well. (UCSB head coach) Bob Williams will be here this week. And (Pepperdine head coach) Paul Westphal will be coming to a practice on October 4th. He's the one coach on the Pepperdine staff who hasn't yet seen Coby play."

We asked Mrs. Leavitt about the in-home visit with Coach Bromley and she replied, "It was fabulous. I'd say it was very favorable -- we had a great time. I think Coby would fit in beautifully there, both in terms of basketball and academics."

Leavitt will visit UC Santa Barbara on October 7th and then head to Cal Poly the weekend of October 14th.

"He'll probably be ready to make a decision by the end of October," Mrs. Leavitt said. "And he'll definitely be signing in November."
