Andre McFarland, 6-5 JR SF/PF Las Vegas (Nev.) Durango, has improved his outside shot considerably in the last year and schools have taken notice.

We spoke with McFarland recently and he listed UNLV, USC, Oregon State, Baylor, Tennessee and Arizona State as programs showing interest in him.

"They've all been calling," said McFarland.

McFarland took an official visit to Oregon State last weekend and we asked him for his impression of the trip.

"It was cool," said McFarland. "About what I expected."

This weekend, McFarland will be taking an official visit to USC.

We asked him what he's looking for in a program and McFarland replied, "I want to make sure I'm not sitting behind some freshman or sophomore. And someplace that is great educationally."

We asked about location as an issue in his decision.

"That's somewhat of a factor," said McFarland. "When I trim my list down, that will be a factor."

McFarland said he has no timeframe for making his decision. He told us he has a 3.2 GPA and scored 890 on the SAT.
