Chris Colvin Names Top Three Schools

Chicago guard Chris Colvin has captivated schools from coast-to-coast, but right now there are three at the top of his list. InsideIllini.com caught up with Colvin to talk basketball. Get inside for more on Colvin.

Chris Colvin, a member of the class of 2009 and a 6-foot-3 senior guard from Chicago's Whitney Young High School, has yet to make a college decision, but he told us last night he's certain he will pick a school before the start of basketball season.

"Before the season, definitely for sure on that," Colvin said. "But I don't have a specific date in mind right now."

The Illini are definitely on Colvin's list of schools, which also include Florida State, NIU, USC, Providence, and Kentucky. But there are three that could be placed on a higher plateau.

"My favorite list of schools right now is USC, Illinois and Kentucky," Colvin said. "I'm not sure which schools have actually offered. My dad has all that information, but I do know Illinois did offer. It's not that I'm not comfortable with Illinois; I'm just waiting and weighing my options to see what the best thing is for me right now."

Although the Illini have commitments from other talented guards in the classes of 2009 and 2010, that isn't weighing heavily on Colvin's mind. "I know they signed three guards, but what I'm more worried about is what school I'm going to pick," Colvin stated.

Colvin is rated as one of the top ten players in the state of Illinois, so we'll be looking for his decision soon.
