2010 Introduction: Alex Tiffin

Alex Tiffin, a junior power forward from Thousand Oaks (Calif.), has three offers to date and several other schools expressing interest...

Alex Tiffin, 6-7 JR PF Thousand Oaks (Calif.) High, is a versatile prospect who can play inside as well as facing the basket. Tiffin has very good ball skills to go with good feet and an advanced low post game.

I spoke with Tiffin recently and he mentioned that three schools have offered him a scholarship to date.

"UC Davis, San Jose State and Holy Cross have offered," said Tiffin. "I'm also hearing from St. Mary's -- I'm going to their camp this weekend. And Penn, Pepperdine and San Diego have been calling also." I asked Tiffin if he has a leader.

"No, not really," said Tiffin. "But I like the three that have offered me." Tiffin talked a little about what he is looking for in a college.

"I want a good basketball school that will hopefully help me to play after college," said Tiffin. "Good academics are important because if basketball doesn't work out I want a respectable degree. The location isn't really a factor."

Tiffin said he hopes to decide prior to his senior season. He said he currently has a 3.7 to 3.8 GPA.
