Scott Suggs Update

Summer basketball has definitely dwindled down and most of the nation's top prospects are starting to narrow their list of schools and some are making choices. InsideIllini.com caught up with Ron Suggs today regarding the recruitment of his son Scott. Get inside.

Ron Suggs has been the main spokesperson for his son's recruitment. Scott Suggs has done very well and today Ron gave us the final three schools his son will chose from. "He's narrowed his list to three: Missouri, Illinois and Washington. He doesn't have a favorite, but those are the top three schools at this point," said Suggs.

"Scott had a great summer improving his all around game. If you were to ask the Illinois coaches they would tell you the same thing. He's really improved and gotten better," he added.

Suggs is a 6-5 shooting guard and a member of the Class of 2008 from Washington (MO) and listed here at Scout.com as the nation's 11th best shooting guard and a four-star recruit.

"This past June he was over there for a visit. It went really well. Illinois has done a great job of recruiting my son; we know he's a very important recruit for them. Like you mentioned - maybe a priority," Suggs said.

School starts in Washington at the end of the month. Scott will be paying close attention to what's going on at all three of schools he will choose from. Regardless of where he goes he's sure to be a difference maker and according to sources, others will follow his lead when he does make his choice.
