Brief Rico Pickett Update

Just a quick update on this one time guard that Illinois was recruiting until he committed to Alabama, today I spoke with Rico Pickett senior regarding college for his son. Get inside.

Rico Pickett a 6-2 PG, 170, from the class of 2007 Decatur high school (Decatur, Ala.) made a commitment and then de-committed from Alabama recently. "Oh right now Alabama is still his number one choice no question about that," said Rico senior.

Pickett is ranked as the ninth best PG in his class by Scout.com and is a four-star recruit that averaged 20.0 ppg game last year.

"Since he committed to Alabama, Illinois stop sending him stuff, but last night the NC State coach called me. Today according to his coach Kentucky called but I haven't talked with them yet and everything is going through me." Said Pickett.

Mr. Pickett asked for Illiniboard.com to call later this evening because he plans to ask his son to see if anything has changed with him regarding his college choice. They want to make sure he's picking the right school.

Scout.com: Think of him as a scoring lead guard. Has absolutely no problem beating his man and taking him to the rack. Finishes well and attacks the rim. To take his game to the next level he's got to learn how to lead and make decisions at the point to get everyone else involved.
