Interest High In Bledsoe

There are two Top 100 caliber point guards that have not committed or signed. John Wall is the headliner and Eric Bledsoe (No. 73) isn't a bad second option.

Have you looked at the best available point guard board lately?

Don't bother, we'll save you the time.

The list begins with top-rated lead guard John Wall of Raleigh (N.C.) Ravenscroft. After Wall, the only crack at getting a Top 100 caliber point guard would be to track down Birmingham (Ala.) Parker standout Eric Bledsoe.

Ranked No. 73 by Scout.com, Bledsoe once committed on a whim to Mississippi. Presently, he's no longer considering the Rebels and he's not long for suitors.

Recently, Baylor came to see Bledsoe. Florida will be in the house a week from Tuesday. Also in the mix are UAB (once the longtime leader), South Florida, Memphis and Alabama.

The Crimson Tide, the in-state heavyweight, have kept up with him since the summer. "They're telling me that I can come in and get a spot," Bledsoe said. Rest assured, most of the other programs on the list are echoing the sentiment.

Bledsoe has taken the SAT, he's waiting on his score. He has not taken an official visit as ball and academics have been front and center. As for qualifying, Bledsoe likes his chances. "It looks like we're going to see. As far as right now, I'm qualifying. I just have to get this ACT out of the way."
