SULLIVAN: Top '07 lead guard to make early choice

While he's not even a junior in high school yet, high scoring lead guard Corey Fisher of St. Patrick H.S. in Elizabeth, N.J. said he is giving serious weight toward making a very early college decision.

The 5-11, 185 pound offensive dynamo reeled off a top six list of St. John's, Memphis, Virginia, DePaul, Connecticut and Kentucky on Wednesday at the Reebok ABCD Camp.

"I have thought about committing and I do have a couple of schools in mind," he admitted after scoring 10 points in the Pistons' 73-62 loss to the Nets on Wednesday afternoon. "It's something that me and my family have to feel comfortable with."

While Fisher declined to name an outright leader, he has already forged close bonds with two of the six programs on his list.

"I know everybody well at St. John's and I am real close with Coach Q [Fred Quartlebaum] and Norm Roberts," Fisher explained. "I also like John Calipari at Memphis a lot."

Coaches from Memphis, Kentucky, Connecticut, DePaul, and St. John's were on hand yesterday afternoon and last night to watch Corey Fisher play at the ABCD Reebok camp, held on the campus of FDU in Teaneck, New Jersey.

During the whirlwind month of July, Fisher will be traveling around the country on the shoe sneaker basketball circuit. If he's ready to make a decision by the end of the summer, then Fisher said he could announce. If not, he'll return to St. Pat's for his junior campaign and let things continue to unfold from there.

Right now, it's all about basketball.

"The summer is real important, and I would like to be regarded as one of the top guards in the Class of 2007," Fisher said. "I just want to stay focused and play with my team."
