On the basketball court, there's a difference between doing work and...whatever it is Angelo Chol has been doing this season.
The top uncommitted big man left on the board in 2011, through six games for San Diego (CA) Hoover High School he is averaging 25.5 points, 12.8 rebounds and 10.2 blocks per game. In a game last week, he actually posted 40 points, 19 boards and 15 blocks.
Such production is a little hard to fathom, but Hoover head coach Ollie Goulston said Chol has taken big steps forward in his game in the past year.
"His ball handling and shooting," Goulston said, when asked in what areas Chol has improved the most. "We're playing him on the outside a lot more. He's second on the team in threes right now."
Fans have known from the start that Chol was going to take his time with his recruitment; as he stated his intentions early on to take all five official visits and sign a national letter of intent in the spring.
All five schools remain even, Goulston said, as Chol is maintaining a level head about the entire process.
"After every trip, they're great trips," he explained. "You don't want to get caught up in the emotion of the visit."
Chol will announce his decision in a press conference on Feb. 17.
