Four-star Class of 2016 big man Sacha Killeya-Jones is one of the hottest commodities on the recruiting trail right now as head coaches from all over the country took in his opening game with Team Loaded Virginia on Wednesday night in Las Vegas.

Since re-opening his commitment from Virginia in early June, Killeya-Jones has a bevy of suitors, as he told Pack Pride that Cal, Florida, Georgetown, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, N.C. State, Wake Forest and Virginia are still involved.

"I'm considering everybody. I'm completely wide open," Killeya-Jones said on Wednesday night.

The four-star 6-foot-10 big man is going to take his time through the recruiting process the second time around. After making his initial commitment to the Cavaliers, Killeya-Jones is taking a different approach to the recruiting process and he hasn't set any visits yet as he explores all of his options post-July.

I don't want to narrow down everything. I kind of had my eyes set on Virginia for awhile and I rushed the decision because I had my eyes set on one school," Killeya-Jones said. "So I don't want to do that again. I have a lot of great choices and I want to play the field before I make my decision."

Before deciding on a his future, Killeya-Jones plans to consult his family and his coaches. The choice will ultimately come down to how he feels about his future at a program.

"It's going to be talking to my family. A lot of me just thinking myself because it's a big decision," Killeya-Jones said. "A lot of the reason I decommitted is because you can't make a quick decision, you have to think it through. A lot of talking to my family, talking to coaches, hearing what they're thinking and everything."

Playing in front of Wolfpack coaches like head coach Mark Gottfried and assistant coach Orlando Early on Wednesday night, Killeya-Jones is running with a tough frontcourt to stop that includes Mamadi Diakite and Javin DeLaurier.

"It's great [playing with Team Loaded]. Mamadi and Javin, I love those guys. We compliment each other pretty well," Killeya-Jones said. "We flow in, play a lot of high-low. We're all kind of hybrid forwards, so it's good. We can learn from each other by how we play."

Killeya-Jones and his Team Loaded Virginia teammates will be one of the favorites in the adidas Summer Championships and they have a tough battle against Jarrett Allen and Texas Pro in the "Creator's Cup" on Thursday.
