Brockman Open To All Options

Duke has some ground to make up with Jon Brockman, but according to sources close to the situation, the Blue Devils have a decent chance of landing the 6-foot-8 245 pound Seattle star.

Jon Brockman started off fairly slow at the Peach Jam in Augusta, S.C., last week – but he finished on a high note, despite playing nearly the entire tournament without teammate Martell Webster.

Brockman is a blue-collar guy. Plain and simple. He gives effort every time he steps onto the court. He may not be a sure-fire pro, but he'll likely be a four-year kid who brings intensity and intangibles to the program.

``Right now I'm just trying to find the right place for me," Brockman said. "If it's on the east coast, that's where I need to be. My parents just want me to be happy."

But it's fairly well-known that it'll take a mammoth effort to lure Brockman out of the west coast and even more specifically, the Pacific Northwest. Right now, according to sources, Washington and Gonzaga have the inside track with UCLA also in the mix.

Brockman also has North Carolina and Arizona in his final six, but they appear to be on the outside looking in.

``This isn't an easy decision," Brockman said. "I can honestly say I like every coach and how every school I am considering plays."
