College programs certainly haven't overlooked him. He's heard, so far, from some 30 schools. He, though, has narrowed it down to a nice tidy list of 11 or so. Those include San Diego, Utah, Gonzaga, San Diego State, Stanford, California, Colorado State, New Mexico, UC Irvine, Santa Clara and Texas Tech. But there are still schools just starting to show interest that could interest Follmer. He said he just recently heard from Kansas for the first time and was excited about that. Washington assistant Cameron Dollar is scheduled to watch Follmer play soon, too.
Follmer, who moved to Orange County from Texas in the summer of 2001, played on the Santa Margarita junior varsity last season. So far, for 4-0 Santa Margarita varsity this season, Follmer is averaging 15.5 points a game and 8 rebounds a game.
Follmer said he intends to possibly verbally commit early, maybe by next summer, so he can enjoy his senior season without worrying about recruiting.
He has a 2.7 GPA and hasn't taken the SAT yet.
