Stiggers: USC Leads

We had a conversation with Nick Stiggers, a very skilled power forward from Montclair Prep, last weekend. Stiggers mentioned a couple Pac-10 and SEC schools...

Nick Stiggers, 6-7 JR PF Van Nuys (Calif.) Montclair Prep, is a big-bodied post who is very skilled with the ball. He's got three-point range, but also has the ability to post up and score in a number of different ways. He's got very good hands and feet.

We spoke with Stiggers over the weekend. He told us Georgia, USC and UCLA all came to visit him at Montclair Prep during the contact period. He also mentioned Arkansas as a school that's been showing a lot of interest.

We asked if he had a leader yet and Stiggers replied, "If I had to sign today, USC would be my top school."

Stiggers indicated that early playing time would not be a major consideration, but geography could be. "I'l like to play somewhere on the West Coast," Stiggers said.

Stiggers said he doesn't think he'll take any visits early. "I probably won't decide until after the summer when I take my trips," Stiggers said.

He said he has a 2.9 GPA and he'll take the SAT in June.
