Andrew Ott, Germantown Academy's 6-foot-9 power forward, is beginning to really come around around to his coach. "He's really turned the corner," Jim Fenerty said. "The last 4 or 5 games it's been Ryan Ayers as our best player and Andrew is playing right there with him."

Villanova is in hot pursuit as is St. Joe's and Penn as the local contenders. Illinois, Purdue, Wake Forest and Virginia are also recruiting him.

Developing prospect has a post game and can face the basket. Still working on strength and confidence issues but he's got good natural ability.

Attended Nike All-American Camp. Family ties to Purdue (dad, brother attended).
