Rondo: Two Schools Atop List, One Leads

Rajon Rondo, the top player in Kentucky, told ITV he may be headed out of state to complete his high school career. Rondo also told ITV that two schools sit atop his list, one of which currently has a slight lead for his services

Rajon Rondo, the top player in the state of Kentucky, may be taking his exciting show out of state next season and Steve Smith and Oak Hill Academy look to be the beneficiary.

Rondo told ITV Monday afternoon that while the final decision has not been made, he'll likely announce his decision to attend the Virginia basketball factory by June 30.

Rondo has received interest from many of the nation's top basketball programs, including UofL, Indiana, Kentucky, Kansas, Florida, USC, Oklahoma, NC State, Tennessee, and North Carolina.

Rajon told ITV that Louisville, Indiana, Kentucky, NC State, Western Kentucky, Kansas and Oklahoma have each offered.

Rondo has been playing well of late and put on a clinic last week in Chicago playing for Dion Lee's Louisville Legends AAU outfit. Rondo averaged over 30 points per game in the Windy City and dropped 42 in a game against Boston Celtics star Antoine Walker.

Rondo also said that he hopes to make a college decision in September and that Louisville and Indiana are the leaders for his services.

And while staying close to home is an important factor for the athletic, 6'2 point guard, Rondo told ITV that Mike Davis and the Hoosiers currently have a slight lead over Coach Pitino and the hometown Louisville Cardinals.

Rondo will travel south with the Louisville Legends this week to participate in the Atlanta Basketball Classic. And the month of July figures to be a busy month for the talented Rondo as he'll camp at adidas ABCD and travel with the Derek Smith All Stars for the Adidas Big Time tournament.
