This Bass Won't Bite

Brandon Bass is holding the signing period hostage. He's the only member of our Top 55, aside from LeBron James, that hasn't offered a commitment to a school.

Bass Could Wait

The last good piece of information we received about Brandon Bass said that LSU and UConn were looking like the team's to beat. Well, that might be the case but it doesn't mean "America's Recruit" is ready to sign and according to his coach, there doesn't seem to be a sense of urgency to put his name on a letter of intent.

"He hasn't signed," Capitol coach Alvin Stewart said. "We're trying to straighten the team out and play well. We're trying to replace some guys due to graduation."

Stewart was non-committal about whether his star forward would sign or even what schools were in the best shape. "I don't want to speculate. Anything I say would be speculation. You'll have to talk to him."

Stewart did reiterate that Bass made visits to UConn, USC, Miami and LSU. "There are other teams but he hasn't ruled out Kentucky and Mississippi State."
