We spoke with the father of Sean Phaler, 6-9 SR PF Villa Park (Calif.) High, last night and asked him for an update on his son's recruitment.
The emergence of Indiana is somewhat of a surprise, since the Hoosiers were apparently out of the race a few weeks ago.
Sean will visit the UCLA campus this weekend, according to his father. Mr. Phaler told us that Sean will definitely sign in November, with a decision likely coming prior to the signing period.
Phaler is a good student and will have no trouble qualifying.
