Ramon Sessions hearing from big time programs

Some big time programs, including Louisville and Florida, have made recent contact to express potential interest with Myrtle Beach, SC senior point guard Ramon Sessions.

At this point in the spring,Ramon Sessions has become one of the hottest commodities in recruiting circles.

Sessions, a 6'3 combo guard from Myrtle Beach, SC, is considered a border-line Top 100 prospect and as a late academic qualifier he's started hearing from some of the nation's premier programs of late, including Louisville and Florida.

The AAA Player of the Year in South Carolina, Sessions averaged 25 points, 11.8 rebounds and 8.1 assists as a senior. Last week, according to both Sessions and his high school coach, U of L head coach Rick Pitino made an inquiring phone call to guage potential interest from the Magnolia state standout.

"He's a late qualifier," explained Myrtle Beach High School head coach Buddy Rogers. "I thought he might sign with UMASS but some other schools have been showing interest of late."

"He's a point guard right now but he could develop into a two guard if he improves his outside shooting," Rogers continued. "Ramon looks to pass first and he can penetrate and score inside."

Former Clemson head coach Larry Shyatt, now an assistant to Billy Donovan at Florida, actively recruited Sessions while the Tigers head coach and provides the Gators a logical inroad with the talented guard should they decide to seriously pursue.

For now, it appears Sessions will weigh his options and wait to see if anything seriously develops with either Louisville or Florida in the next few weeks.
