Still Waiting On Schools
Jeremy Monceaux continues to do everything he can to put the throttle down on his recruitment. Recently, he was named to the Alabama Super All-State team, a reward for averaging 28 points and 10 assists as a senior.
"We lost in the regional finals," head coach and father Dave Monceaux said. The second half of the season went real well. He had a couple of 49-point games and a 35."
Despite the fine season, Monceaux's recruitment has remained in what's been a holding pattern since injuring his knee last spring.
"When he got hurt, a lot of people fell off," Dave Monceaux said. "I think what they are waiting for is to see if he's left and if they have something left. Alabama offered for him to sitout a year and then scholarship the following year."
Jermey's father also said that the family thought UAB might make an official overture this week, but on Monday Murray Bartow resigned as coach. Auburn, like Alabama, might be interested in him walking on a year and then giving him a scholarship.
Situations like the UAB coach resigning are nothing new to Monceaux. In truth, he was close to picking UAB last summer, right before assistant coach Andy Kennedy bolted Birmingham for the Bearcats of Cincinnati.
Jacksonville State and Liberty have offered, but Liberty recently fired coach Mel Hankinson so who knows what's going on with Flames, though they have hired a new head coach.
Remember this: as coaches come and go this spring, Monceaux will remain on the board and don't be surprised to see a new head coach look at a list of available guards and give the native of Louisiana a call.
