Malone Down To Four

Greenville (TN) High's Matt Malone has chopped his list all the way down to four. The sweet shooting forward is in the process of conducting his in-home visits.

Malone's Recruitment Moves Along

Matt Malone is in the process of conducting his in-home visits. However, just to get to that process was a process in itself.

Malone's father said that his son wound up with 17 offers. "A lot of them took care of themselves because we are interested in academics and it had to be engineering," the elder Malone said.

In the end, four schools remained. "I'm down to Kent State, Tennessee Tech, UAB and Chattanooga," Matt Malone said. "I'm trying to stay close to home."

In case you are wondering, Kent State is the school furthest from his home at 7 hours and Tennessee Tech is the closest at 2 and a half hours. "I didn't want to be too close and I didn't want to be too far away."

Malone plans on studying civil engineering and obviously not every school met the criteria. "I just want to go somewhere where I know I'm going to play and they have what I want to study."

With no official visits set up, the in-homes will be important and the process isn't going to get any easier. "[Narrowing the list] was probably the hardest thing I've ever done," Malone said. "I had so many schools I liked so much."

Tennessee Tech was in his living room Monday night, Chattanooga on Wednesday, UAB on the 19th and Kent State on the 25th.
