SULLIVAN: Fisher may make decision soon, UK in mix

The summer is approaching and it could be the timeframe Corey Fisher, the 6-foot-1 point guard from St. Patrick's High School in Elizabeth, New Jersey, might make a decision.

The summer is approaching and it could be the timeframe Corey Fisher, the 6-foot-1 point guard from St. Patrick's High School in Elizabeth, New Jersey, might make a decision. Fisher, considered one of the best players in the 2007 class, has already been offered by such schools like St. John's, Florida, Rutgers, and Villanova.

Fisher put his skills on display this past weekend at the Rumble in the Bronx, held on the campus of Fordham University. Corey played with the Long Island Lightning, a team that was eliminated by the eventual champion, GC Ballers, in the quarterfinals. He spoke after his game about his recruiting process.

"I am open," Fisher said. "But I am interested in St. John's, Kentucky, Florida, Rutgers, Villanova, and North Carolina State."

Where does Kentucky stand? "I like them a lot," Fisher said. "My coaches have told me they have heard from them. I just have to see how interested they are. They have a great program and a great coach."

Speculation around the NYC area is that Fisher favors St. John's. However, Corey said he isn't leaning to any particular school. "I don't have a favorite," Fisher said. "But myself and my family will sit down soon to discuss the list."

Fisher has good range on his outside jumper. He also has the ability to find an open teammate with a pass. Corey is a solid floor general who is improving tournament to tournament.

"I don't have any visits planned right now," he said. "But I would like to make a decision at the end of the summer. I just have to see who is really interested."

Fisher said he plans on attending the Reebok ABCD camp and also play in the And1 High School championships.

It's likely Fisher will play in some events during the summer and then gauge how interested other high major schools like Kentucky are in his skills. Remember, Fisher is going to be a junior next season and still has plenty of time to make a decision on a college school. For now, Fisher seems ready to make one after the July recruiting period.
