Junior Post Craig Austin
Craig Austin, 6-9 JR C Carlsbad (Calif.) High, is a solid young post prospect who projects to the mid to high major level. We saw Austin recently in the Torrey Pines National Prep Classic and we were impressed with his footwork, good hands and passing ability. Austin still needs to get stronger, but he has a nice frame and converts a high percentage of shots around the basket. Austin told us that his current list of schools includes Oregon, New Mexico, Gonzaga, Texas Tech and Navy. He said both New Mexico and Texas Tech have been out to his high school to see him. He also corresponds by email with all of the schools on his list. When asked about the factors he'll consider when making his choice, Austin said, "how they've done in the past -- how strong the program is -- and academics." We asked about the issue of early playing time and Austin replied, "I want to play early -- I don't want to go a place where I'll sit on the bench." Location could also play a role in Austin's decision. "I'd like to stay on the West Coast," said Austin. Austin told us that he plans on making a decision prior to his senior year, but he'll wait until after he plays in the summer tournaments and camps. Austin also said that he has a 3.2 GPA and has yet to take the SAT.
