Tons Of Interest For Sulaimon

Following a strong summer, Sulaimon made a strong jump in Scout.com's 2012 rankings. His recruitment picked up as well and he holds a number of scholarship offers.

Rasheed Sulaimon's strong summer, which led to a jump to No. 16 over in Scout.com's 2012 rankings, has led to an upgrade in his recruitment.

Already the talented junior-to-be holds scholarships from Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Arizona, Memphis, Georgia Tech, Stanford, Marquette, Indiana and Oregon State.

He also mentioned Kansas, North Carolina and Duke as schools that were showing him interest.

"Right now it's going really well for me," Sulaimon said of his recruitment. "I'm enjoying hearing from a lot of coaches and I'm just trying to pick which school is right for me. I'm in the process of looking."

Although he said it's too early for a favorite or leader, Sulaimon did mention a handful of schools that have made him an early priority.

"Right now I still have quite a list," the five-star 2012 prospect said. "I would say the five hardest schools that are recruiting me are Duke, Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor and Arizona."

"Those aren't my top five," he added. "Those are just the schools that are talking to me the most. I do have a lot of schools that are recruiting me also."

This past weekend Sulaimon took a visit to Texas. His next visit is set for October 15th to Duke for their season-opening festivities. He is also in the process of setting up visits to Baylor and Texas A&M.

"Right now it's still pretty early," he said of his recruitment. "I'm getting close to the stage where I can take more visits and start narrowing it down a little bit. But for the most part it's still in the early stages."

The Houston (Tex.) Strake Jesuit standout is currently rated No. 3 at the shooting guard position.
