Everette Pedescleaux sets BB visits

6-6 forward Everette Pedescleaux of Robbinsdale (MN) Armstrong has a much tougher college decision to make than most players in the Class of 2004. Not only does he have to decide on a school, but he has to decide to which sports he is going to play.

Everette Pedescleaux has narrowed his choices to 10 schools, all of which have offered him a scholarship. He cut the list from 19 and has set four of his five visits.


However, Pedescleaux admits that his recruitment is still pretty wide open.


"Just because some of the 10 schools are not on my visit list does not mean that they are out of it.


Pedescleaux is considering Creighton, Dayton, Illinois State, Montana State, New Mexico, Northern Iowa, Southern Illinois, Toledo, Tulsa and Wisconsin-Green Bay. He will visit Wisconsin-Green Bay September 6th, Tulsa on September 13th, and Southern Illinois on September 20th and Dayton September 27th.


Pedescleaux shined this summer as a member of the Howard Pulley Panthers AAU team.

He scored 18 points to help the Howard Pulley Panthers 17-and-under team basketball team defeat the Illinois Warriors 70-66 in the Price Chopper Kansas City Prep Invitational championship. The Panthers finished 6-0 in the event.


He is also an outstanding football recruit as well. Minnesota, Kansas State and Connecticut have offered him a football scholarship, and Wisconsin has expressed interest.


Pedescleaux plays tight end, fullback and defensive end for the Falcons, who finished 3-7. He is an undersized power forward who is not afraid to use his strength inside as a basketball player and he uses the same approach on the football field. He leveled a Lakeville football player in a scrimmage this past Saturday.


Pedescleaux is 6-6 ½ and weights 240 pounds. He bench presses 250 pounds and runs a 4.8 40. He said the Gophers are looking at him as a tight end recruit.


Armstrong opens the season Friday versus Cambridge-Isanti.


GoldenSports.Net will have recaps of his games throughout the year.
