2006 Focus: Ryan Vermeulen

Ryan Vermeulen, a 6-7 post prospect from Modesto (Calif.), has a wide variety of schools showing him interest...

Ryan Vermeulen, 6-7 JR C Modesto (Calif.) High, told us recently that he's been receiving interest from Washington, Pacific, Pepperdine and Clemson, among other schools.

"Those schools have all been calling my high school coach," Vermeulen said. "Washington came down before the season."

Vermeulen talked about some of the issues he'll consider when making his choice.

"Basically, a good overall basketball program," said Vermeulen. "Also, someplace that is good in agriculture and business -- that's what I want to major in. I'm interested in Clemson because they have a good agriculture program."

Vermeulen told us he's averaging around 13 points and 15-16 rebounds per game this season.

Don't look for a decision anytime soon from Vermeulen. "I want to make a good decision," said Vermeulen. "I'll sit down and decide sometime before next season."

Vermeulen told us he has a 2.7 GPA and he'll take the SAT in March.
