Kirk Drawing Wide Interest

Alex Kirk, a talented junior post prospect from New Mexico, gives us some early thoughts on his recruitment to date...

Alex Kirk, 6-9 JR C Los Alamos (New Mexico) High, is drawing early interest from a number of high major programs.

I spoke with Kirk recently and asked him about the schools that have been in contact recently.

"I've been talking with New Mexico and Arizona State a lot," said Kirk. "Colorado, Texas Tech, USC, Cal and South Alabama have also been showing interest."

Kirk said several of the schools have extended scholarship offers.

"New Mexico, Arizona State, USC, Colorado and South Alabama have offered," said Kirk.

Kirk talked about the issues he'll consider when making his choice.

"Academics are big and I also would like to play pretty early," said Kirk. "A program that will win is a factor and location is a little important so my family can watch me."

Kirk said he hopes to reach a decision prior to the beginning of his senior year. He said he currently has a 3.8 GPA.
