Junior Profile: Josh Heytvelt
Josh Heytvelt, 6-9 JR PF Clarkston (Wash.) High, is an extremely gifted big man who would be the top prospect overall in the west if not for the presence of Marvin Williams. With a great frame, a terrific stroke and nice hands, Heytvelt oozes upside. It's no surprise that he's hearing from most of the top schools around the country. We spoke with Heytvelt yesterday and he told us that he hasn't really formed a list yet. He says he's open to any school, from any region of the country and he plans on taking his time with the process. He said he would probably take five visits. When we asked if he'd given much thought to the criteria for choosing a school, Heytvelt said, "I want to go someplace with the best chance of winning a national championship. So, schools like Duke, Kansas, Indiana, Gonzaga, Arizona, Oregon -- but I'm open to anyone right now." Heytvelt told us that early playing time isn't a big deal for him. "It's not important," said Heytvelt. "I'm looking more at the players and coaches with the team." Heytvelt also told us that, while Clarkston is a small town, he's not necessarily looking for another small town environment. "It doesn't matter," said Heytvelt. "I don't care if it's a big city or small town." Heytvelt told us that he has a 3.0 GPA and he's currently awaiting results on his PSAT.
