Damian Lillard Has Top Five

Damian Lillard didn't have any rep heading into the summer, but he showed during July that he's one of the top sleepers in the country. Lillard told us today that he currently has five schools at the top of his list...

Damian Lillard, 6-0 SR PG Oakland (Calif.) High, is one of the elite guard prospects in the west for 2008. He wasn't on the radar of many schools heading into July, but he made quite an impression during the evaluation period. Numerous schools in the west tried to get involved with Lillard after watching him play in July.

I spoke to Lillard this afternoon and he told me five schools are at the top of his list.

"St. Mary's, San Diego State, Fresno State, SMU and Weber State are my top five," said Lillard.

I asked Lillard if he plans on visiting all five schools.

"I'd like to, just to make sure I don't miss anything," said Lillard. "The only one I've set up right now is to St. Mary's on August 30th."

Lillard said all five schools have offered scholarships. He said he'll probably make his decision sometime around October.
