2008 Introduction: Kelly Kaigler

Kelly Kaigler, a relatively unknown junior point guard from San Jose, is a quick and talented prospect with some upside. He tells us he's been hearing from schools in the West Coast Conference, Big West and Big Sky, among other programs...

Kelly Kaigler, 6-1 JR PG San Jose (Calif.) Oak Grove, is a bit of a sleeper in the 2008 class, but he still has a number of schools expressing interest in him.

We spoke with Kaigler recently and he gave us a list of schools.

"Santa Clara, San Diego, Montana, Montana State, UC Santa Barbara, Loyola Marymount, TCU, Albany, Holy Cross, Bucknell, Portland and Portland State," said Kaigler. "I've also heard a little from Texas Tech and Washington State, but not too much."

Kaigler said Montana and Montana State have offered a scholarship.

"UCSB, Santa Clara and TCU have all been to open gym at my school," said Kaigler. "I went to San Diego for their elite camp in the summer and it was real nice. I liked the weather down there."

Kaigler talked a little about what he's looking for in a school.

"I'd kind of like to get out of the Bay Area, but I wouldn't mind staying if it is the right situation," said Kaigler. "Early playing time isn't that important. I wouldn't mind sitting my first year, as long as I have a fair chance to get time the next year."

Kaigler said he'll probably make his decision after the summer. He told us he had a 3.3 GPA in the last semester.
