Josh Lomers: Four Remain

Josh Lomers is a 7-footer who had a pretty good year - and he's already trimmed his list to four schools. Check out who the big Texan is considering.

Josh Lomers has flown under the radar playing in Boerne, Texas, and with a small AAU outfut called the Austin Hoop Zone.

The 7-foot-1, 255-pound rising senior at Boerne High (Texas) has the prom this weekend – so he'll basically be a no-show at the Kingwood Classic.

Blessed with size, good footwork and solid fundamentals, Lomers is a guy who is a good bet to improve. In fact, he already has.

``I finished this season better than I started," said Lomers, who averaged 22 points, 10 boards and 6 blocks as a junior. "My court awareness has really gotten better.

``I just want to get better," he added. "Bigger, stronger and faster. I'd also like to get better away from the basket because I'm pretty good with my back to the basket."

Lomers will attend Nike Camp and the Big Time and the AAU Nationals in July, but that'll be about it for the college coaches to catch him in action. And in all honestly, there's only a quartet of college coaches he cares about, anyway.

Lomers said that Texas A&M, Baylor, Georgia Tech and Colorado are his four finalists. He will visit Georgia Tech on April 28 and Baylor the following weekend. Dates haven't been set up for Colorado and Texas A&M.

All but Georgia Tech have been in the school to meet with him. Yellow Jackets coach Paul Hewitt is expected in next week.

``I'm know I'm going to get a good education wherever I go," Lomers said. "So education isn't as important as my mom thinks."

``I'd prefer not to go into my senior year still deciding," he added. "I'd like to get it out of the way soon."

``I'm probably leaning a little more towards staying in the state," Lomers continued. "But I've got an open mind and I'm not settled on anything. I'm probably leaning towards the in-state schools because I've been to them before."
