Last year college coaches began gathering at Hamilton Southeastern to see Gary Harris. Now there's another guy at HSE that has become a hot name among college coaches.

So while Harris is playing football and away from open gyms, Zak Irvin, a 2013 prospect, is the one getting all the attention.

Irvin already has scholarship offers from Xavier, Purdue, Indiana, Illinois, Miami and Baylor, plus interest from Michigan, Michigan State, Baylor, Butler and Vanderbilt.

"I'm just taking it all in," Irvin said of his recruitment. "I'm probably going to make my decision after my junior year."

This past weekend Irvin took an unofficial visit to Baylor. He's also visited Butler, Illinois, Indiana, Purdue, Xavier and Michigan.

Irvin, who grew from 6-foot-1 to 6-foot-5 in the past year, put together a strong summer playing with the Eric Gordon All-Stars.

"I played pretty well," he said of his time on the summer circuit. "We played well as a team and we wont a lot of ball games."

A slender wing prospect, Irvin relies on his jump shot from long range. He's also developed a strong mid-range game, where he's comfortable pulling up off one or two dribbles.

Irvin said he's spent a lot of time working out since AAU season.

"I've been in here working out and in the weight room," he said. "I'm just trying to get my mid-range shot better, my long range shot better and my ball handling and strength."
