RouSean Cromwell Lists Handful

RouSean Cromwell made the move from Memphis Fairley High (Tenn.) to IMG Academy. The senior big man has a list of a handful of schools, but that could change dramatically if he waits until the spring.

It wasn't easy for RouSean Cromwell to get up and leave Memphis for Florida, but the 6-6-9 ½, 210-pound senior has no regrets.

``It's the best decision I've made," Cromwell said. "The people and the atmosphere are great and we have the best trainers and coaches, so I can continue to get better."

Cromwell, who is now at IMG Academy (Fla.), puts up 200 shots in practice each day – and that's not even counting the work he does on his own. He's working on his low-post moves and also adding bulk to his lithe frame.

Cromwell, who played at Memphis Fairley High (Tenn.) last season, really didn't get a true chance to show coaches what he could do this past summer because of injuries.

He lists Tennessee, Stanford, Arkansas, Florida State and Arkansas-Little Rock as the five schools he is currently considering – although that could change considerably because of the lack of big man available in the Class of 2005.

``I'm looking for a school that's the right fit for me," Cromwell said. "The people and what I can bring to the table are important. I don't want to go somewhere that they are loaded at my position, but I also want to play against good competition."
