Damian Lillard Getting Close

Damian Lillard is one of the better sleepers in the West Coast class of 2008. He's not known outside of the west, but plenty of programs in the west are recruiting him...

Damian Lillard, 5-11 SR PG Oakland (Calif.) High, is one of the elite point guard prospects in the West Coast class of 2008. While he's not a true one, Lillard has the skills and athleticism to play the position. He's very adept at getting his own shot and he's got a nice upside.

I spoke with Lillard recently and asked about the schools he has visited so far.

"I went to St. Mary's and Weber State," said Lillard. "St. Mary's was okay, but I liked Weber better. I liked the coaches and players, as well as the city."

Lillard has a couple of official visits upcoming.

"I'm going to San Diego next weekend and Boise State the following weekend," said Lillard. "I'm also starting to hear a bit from Colorado State. After the Boise trip, I'll probably be ready to decide."
