Catching Up With Aaron Spears

Chicago Dunbar big man Aaron Spears will take his second visit this weekend. Illinois is the stopping place and his second Big Ten school in as many trips.

Illinois Up Next; Houston, Oklahoma To Get Trips?

Right now, two schools are at the forefront in the battle for the services of 6-9 Chicago Dunbar big man Aaron Spears.

"Its like Illinois and Iowa right now," Spears said. "They both are so good I'm going to have a hard time deciding. I'm still going to take the rest of my visits though."

Illinois gets a trip out of Spears this weekend. Spears indicated that Oklahoma and Houston (where he has relatives) might be in line for trips. This is the first time in our conversations with Spears that Oklahoma came up. "They were in like around the end of the season."

Spears will participate in the Jordan Brand Capital Classic Game next week. On Tuesday, like the rest of us, he watched the McDonald's Slam Dunk and 3-Point Contest.

"It was alright. Hassan Adams and (Amare) Stoudemire were doing some exciting dunks. They didn't have anybody like James White this year."

No, Aaron, they sure didn't.
