Guede Not Sure If He'll Sign

Paul Guede, a 6-foot-5 forward out of Sanford (N.C.) Grace Christian via England, has two he's looking at if he decides early. The question remains: will he sign next week?

The Nevada Wolfpack and Milwaukee-Wisconsin Panthers are battling for a recruit. While they continue to try and outwork the other, there's a big picture question that remains: will Paul Guede sign this fall.

"He hasn't committed anywhere yet," family friend Ben Sheffler told "His plan going into the year was to commit this spring. But, because he's enjoyed his relationship with Coach Jeter and he enjoyed his visit to Nevada, he's contemplating whether he wants to commit or not.

"Depending on how things go, he's still mulling over some questions and talking with both programs. We'll see what he wants to do."

Guede, an adidas Super Star camper last summer, could wait until the spring and then programs like Northwestern (offer), DePaul and Tennessee might crank up their interest. Hoping to draw the process out some are Western Carolina and Chattanooga, a pair of schools that have offered already.

"I think, like most kids, he's wondering if he wants to go through his senior year with schools looking at him and might have a spot for him," Sheffler said. "I'd say it's about 50-50 right now (in terms of signing early). He's just really seriously thinking about it and thinking everything through."
