Top Three For Powell

Norman Powell, the top shooting guard in the west for 2011, says three schools top his list...

Norman Powell, 6-2 SG San Diego (Calif.) Lincoln, is the top shooting guard in the west for 2011 and I spoke with him in Las Vegas regarding his recruitment.

"I'm hearing from UCLA, Arizona, Arizona State, Kansas and Oregon," said Powell. "My top three right now are UCLA, Arizona and San Diego State."

I asked Powell what he is looking for in a school.

"Early playing time, my chemistry with the team and coaches, and someplace that has a good graduation rate for its players," said Powell.

Powell has been on unofficial visits to UCLA and San Diego State. I asked him if he plans on visiting Arizona.

"I think I will be taking an unofficial to Arizona in early August," said Powell.

Powell said he thinks he could make a decision relatively soon.

"I think I will be making a decision sometime in August or September," said Powell.
