Singler In No Hurry To Decide

E.J. Singler, a very solid all-around player from Oregon, has three Pac-10 programs at the top of his list. He says he's probably going to play through the summer before choosing a college...

E.J. Singler, 6-5 JR SF Medford (Ore.) South Medford, had a very good showing in the spring evaluation period. He has an excellent feel for the game and he's constantly involved in the action. His overall skill level is good, he plays with toughness and he's a very good competitor.

I spoke with Singler recently and asked about the programs that have been involved with him.

"The main three right now are Washington State, Oregon and Stanford," said Singler. "Two schools that have offered so far are St. Louis and Pepperdine."

Singler talked a little about the issues important to him in choosing a school.

"Definitely how I interact with the coaches and the players," said Singler. "Also, the environment, the campus and whether I feel comfortable there. I don't really care about the East Coast or West Coast – I'll go with whoever wants me the most."

Singler has been to the Oregon campus several times and said both Washington State and Stanford want to have him visit.

"I don't know if I'll be able to take unofficial visits because my schedule is very busy with football and basketball right now," said Singler. "I'll probably just play through the summer and then take official visits in the fall."

Singler said he isn't close to making a decision. A very good student, he said his GPA is around 3.5 or 3.6.
