West Coast On Lawson

Kenny Lawson, a 6-8 post from San Diego, has WCC, Big West and Mountain West programs recruiting him...

Kenny Lawson, 6-8 JR PF Vista (Calif.) High, hasn't been seen by too many people outside of California, but he's an intriguing post prospect with upside.

We spoke with Lawson yesterday and asked for the list of schools that have been showing interest in him.

"San Diego, Pacific, San Francisco, Pepperdine and San Diego State," said Lawson.

When asked about the issues he'll consider when making his choice, Lawson replied, "A decent basketball program where I'll fit in and a good education."

Lawson said location is not really an issue for him, but he'd prefer California.

"But leaving wouldn't be a problem for me if it was the right situation," said Lawson.

Lawson has taken an unofficial visit to San Diego State and he has plans for some official visits.

"I want to visit Pacific, San Francisco and San Diego State."

Lawson doesn't see himself making a decision anytime soon.

"I want to take my time, because I just started getting recruited," said Lawson. "I'll probably decide sometime towards the end of summer or the early signing period."
