Top 15 Still on Board

There's not a whole lot of quality talent still left on the board for the Class of 2005, but we take a look at 15 of the elite players who aren't committed yet.

Brandon Rush, 6-6 ½, 195, WF, Mount Zion (N.C.) –A school list really doesn't make much sense for the 4th-ranked player in the nation because the youngest of the Rush brothers is a near-lock to go directly to the NBA.

Andray Blatche, 6-11, 225, C/BF, South Kent (Conn.) – The Syracuse native and 6th-rated player in the Class of 2005 had the Orangemen and West Virginia atop his list not long ago, but now the interest has been minimal at best ever since he made it clear the NBA was his priority after a year of prep.

Keith Brumbaugh, 6-8, 200, WF, Deland High (Fla.) – The 18th-ranked player on the board is a heavy lean to Florida State, but don't be shocked if he tries to follow guys like Rush and Blatche to the NBA.

Jamont Gordon, 6-3 ½, 215, WG, Oak Hill Academy (Va.) – The Tennessee native and No. 32 prospect in America recently told he'll be a late signee and will likely head to Tennessee.

Eche Echefu, 6-8, 220, BF, Montrose Christian (Md.) – As is the norm for Stu Vetter's players, Echefu, the 34th-ranked player in the country, will wait until the spring. Right now Florida State, Michigan and Virginia Tech lead with Texas, Kentucky, Duke, Georgia and Virginia also in the mix.

Leo Criswell, 6-9, 200, F, Coastal Christian Academy (Va.) – The 52nd-rated player hails from Kansas City, Kan., and all indications are that UNLV is the leader. Missouri and St. John's are also involved.

Theo Davis, 6-10, 215, BF, Cardozo (N.Y.) – The Canadian, who occupies the No. 55 spot in the Top 100, re-opened his recruitment recently after pledging to Texas and now he's got numerous suitors – including UCLA, Florida State, Syracuse, Cincinnati, Oklahoma, Illinois, St. John's, Seton Hall, Arizona and Georgia Tech.

Lavance Fields, 6-1, 185, PG, Xaverian (N.Y.) - Stocky point guard and No. 64 prospect is debating between Pittsburgh and St. John's.

Danny Williams, 6-2, 185, WG, Fremont (Calif.) – California native will likely be a late signee.

Anthony Sparks, 6-8, 300, C, Murray-Wright (Mich.) – Big man hails from same school that produced Robert "Tractor" Traylor.

Michael Washington, 6-8, 210, BF, McGhee High (Ark.) – Academics are a factor for the Arkansas native. He'll be a late signee.

Rousean Cromwell, 6-10, 210, BF, IMG (Fla.) – The Tennessee native made the switch to IMG and lists Tennessee, Stanford, Arkansas, Florida State and Arkansas-Little Rock.

Jeremy Pargo, 6-2, 185, PG, Robeson (Ill.) – Still working on his academics, he'll likely be a late signee. Gonzaga and San Francisco are involved.

Joe Wolfinger, 7-0, 220, C, Northfield Mount Hermon (Mass.) – Oregon native has blown up since hitting the prep ranks. Cincinnati, Washington, Georgia Tech and Florida State.

Jerome Johnson, 6-8, 220, BF, Hargrave Military Academy (Va.) – Former Clemson signee is still open.
