Biggs May Be Opening List

Don Bosco Prep's big man may be adding to top six list after strong summer play.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Tyrell Biggs has maintained all spring and summer long that he was down to a mere six schools, but on Friday night at the Main Event, he admitted that he's leaving some wiggle room for a handful of high major programs.

Biggs, who scored 10 points to help the Metro Hawks to a rousing come from behind victory over Team Georgia Elite, said that he will possibly consider some additional suitors this summer.

"There's a lot of new schools trying to get in," he said on Thursday night. "Like Syracuse and Miami."

The skilled 6-7 power forward from Don Bosco Prep in New Jersey added that he is still seriously considering Maryland, Duke, Pittsburgh, Connecticut, Villanova and Virginia. Coaches from most of those staffs, including two Terp assistants, were at Biggs' game on Thursday evening.

Duke Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski watched a portion of Biggs' game on Thursday night at the Main Event, as the Metro Hawks followed a marquee matchup between Jamal Boykin's Belmont Shore squad and Jon Brockman's Friends of Hoop team.

Biggs fielded quite a few calls from college coaches after returning last weekend from the Nike Peach Jam Tournament in South Carolina.

"A lot of the coaches just asked me if I was coming out here to Vegas," Biggs said. "It wasn't really a conversation."

At the end of the summer, it will be interesting to see exactly where the dust settles with Biggs and if his six finalists remain intact.

"I will probably wind up letting some other schools in," Biggs admitted. "We are going to sit down and talk about it -- me, my father and my brother."
