Long List For West Coast Guard

Derrick Jasper, one of the top guards in the west for 2006, has a long list of potential schools. The Pac-10, Big 12, WCC, ACC and Big East all have teams involved in Jasper's recruitment...

We spoke with Derrick Jasper, 6-4 JR SG Paso Robles (Calif.) High, last night and he gave us the list of schools that he's seriously considering.

"UConn, Kansas, Washington, Arizona, USC, Gonzaga, Cal and Georgia Tech," said Jasper.

We asked which programs have offered a scholarship.

"UConn, Gonzaga, Washington and USC have offered," replied Jasper.

Jasper said a number of coaches have been out to see him at his high school in recent months.

"Coach Romar, Coach Braun, Coach Floyd and assistant coaches from UConn and Gonzaga have been to my school," said Jasper.

Jasper told us he has yet to set up any visits. "I won't do any visits until after July."

When asked if he has a leader, Jasper replied, "no, they're all pretty equal."

Jasper said he's doing fine in school and he's still waiting to take the SAT.
