Here's a look at some of the top players and their situations:
2. Patrick Patterson, 6-8, 235, PF, Huntington (West Va.) – The big man out of West Virginia (Scout.com, No. 11) has narrowed his list to a half-dozen: Kentucky, Florida, Duke, Virginia, Wake Forest and Virginia.
4. James Anderson, 6-6, 190, SF, Junction City (Ark.) – The smooth wing out of Arkansas (Scout.com, No. 24) is basically down to a pair: Oklahoma State and Kansas. He will make his pick at a 1 p.m. news conference. UPDATE: SIGNS WITH OKLAHOMA STATE.
6. Tracy Smith, 6-8, 235, PF, Mount Zion (N.C.) – His body is totally different and so is his recruitment. N.C. State, Oklahoma State, LSU and USC are four in the mix for the No. 45 player in the Class of 2007. N.C. State appears to be the front-runner.
7. Jai Lucas, 5-10, 150, PG, Bellaire (Texas) – John Lucas' son, ranked at No. 46, has visited Maryland, Oklahoma, Kentucky and Oklahoma State.
8. Rico Pickett, 6-3, 180, PG, Decatur (Ala.) – The one-time Alabama commit (Scout.com, No. 59) is still considering the Crimson Tide. However, he's also looking at Florida State, Illinois and N.C. State. UPDATE - SIGNS WITH ALABAMA
9. Marcus and Markieff Morris, 6-8 ½, 215, F, Prep Charter (Pa.) – The twins from Philly will almost certainly head to prep school next year. Marcus is ranked at No. 63 and the pair is being pursued by Memphis, Kentucky, La Salle, Indiana and others.
10. Tyrel Reed, 6-2, 175, PG, Burlington (Kan.) – The No. 67 player in the senior class has taken a trip to Stanford. Kansas and North Carolina remain in contact, but haven't stepped up in their interest level.
11. Jason Henry, 6-6, 190, SG, Light of World (Ga.) – The extremely talented wing (Scout.com, No. 69) is still trying to get his academics in order. Schools who have expressed interest include Louisville, Tennessee and Washington.
15. Leon Freeman, 6-4, 220, SG, Boys to Men (Ill.) – He's talented enough to move up much higher on this list, but academics are one of the questions. Now that he's in Illinois, look for DePaul to make a strong push. Cincinnati and Tennessee are also reportedly in the mix. He may have no other option than to go to junior college or declare for the NBA Draft.
18. Mamadou Diarra, 6-10, 235, F, Stoneridge (Calif.) – USC appears to be the leader. Other schools trying to get involved include Fresno State, Baylor, UCLA, Auburn and Oklahoma State. Is likely a spring signee.
20. Joseph Katuka, 6-10, PF, Montverde (Fla.) School – An injury derailed his summer and kept him out of action. So far his recruitment has been quiet with St. Joe's and SMU showing a lot of interest. The longer it goes the more programs could get involved with size being the premium it is.
23. Darrington Hobson, 6-7, 190, SG, Decatur Christian (Ill.) – The ex-Wyoming commit is well-traveled and still trying to qualify. Until he does, your guess on where he lands is as good as ours.
25. Tomasz Kwaitkowski, 7-1, 250, C, Lee Academy (Maine) – The big man from Poland is a legitimate 7-footer and he's set to visit Virginia this weekend. Baylor and Rhode Island are also in the mix.
