Brockman's offer list grows

After a strong showing at the Peach Jam last week, during which some big-time coaches were watching closely, Jon Brockman's offer list expanded upon his return to his Snohomish, Wash. home.

Brockman's list heading into the Peach Jam consisted of UCLA, Arizona, Gonzaga, Washington, Duke and North Carolina -- all of which had coaches present in North Augusta for the Peach Jam.

And all but one called when he returned.

"Coach K, Coach Williams, Coach Howland, Coach Few and Coach Romar called," Brockman said. "They all have offered except for Arizona. They [Arizona] haven't been in touch [this week]."

Brockman, who is often hard to reach via phone, said he missed the call from UNC's head coach.

"Just recently he called," Brockman said of Roy Williams. "He left a message on the answering machine."

Brockman said the Tar Heel head man made sure the 6-8 rising senior power forward knew he had a scholarship offer from the Tar Heels, despite it being on voicemail.

Analyst Dave Telep, of TheInsidersHoops, forecasted the offers in a chat on Tuesday afternoon at Inside Carolina>

"It is my opinion that both Duke and UNC will put forth offers to him and they may have already," he said in the chat. "Monday began a period of a few days where they could contact the kids. That means that offers likely were extended."

And as Brockman confirmed, they indeed have extended offers.

"They're all the same [to me]," Brockman said of the schools on his list. "I'm thinking that I probably will visit those schools this fall.

"I'll decide no sooner than the fall."

Brockman led his Friends of Hoop team to the quarterfinals of the Peach Jam, averaging 19.3 points and 7.5 rebounds -- including a 23-point, 17-rebound performance against the Miami Tropics.
