Keegan Hornbuckle, 6-6 JR SF North Hollywood (Calif.) Campbell Hall, gave me an update recently on his recruitment.
"The schools that are calling are UC Santa Barbara, Northwestern and Pepperdine," said Hornbuckle. "I'm getting mail from Arizona State, Washington State, Notre Dame, Boston College, Gonzaga, San Diego and Irvine."
Hornbuckle has taken an unofficial visit to UC Santa Barbara.
"I really liked the campus – they have nice facilities, which is always a plus," said Hornbuckle. "I think they have a new fitness center – it was pretty nice."
I asked Hornbuckle if proximity to home would be a factor in his decision.
"Staying close would be a plus, but it's not that big a deal," said Hornbuckle. "I would definitely go back east or somewhere else if it felt right."
Hornbuckle said he'll be looking to take more unofficial visits.
"I want to play through the April tournaments and then see which schools are really interested," said Hornbuckle. "I'll probably take some more unofficials after the April evaluation period."
Hornbuckle said he had a 3.0 GPA last semester.
