Gerald McLemore, a 6-2 junior shooting guard from San Diego, is an excellent student, along with being a very good prospect...
, 6-2 JR SG Scripps Ranch (Calif.) High, gets it done in the classroom as well as on the court. As a result, he has a number of schools across the country expressing interest in him.
McLemore told us yesterday that he's hearing from Yale, Princeton, Loyola Chicago, Illinois, San Diego, Loyola Marymount, San Diego State, Utah, Stanford, Iowa State and Columbia.
We asked if any school stands out for him.
"No, they're still in a group," said McLemore.
We asked McLemore if any schools, in particular, are showing him extra attention.
"Yale and Columbia call a lot," said McLemore.
When questioned about what he is looking for in a school, McLemore said, "Someplace that has a good academic background. An Ivy League school would be nice. But I'm also looking for someplace that has a combination of good basketball and academics."
