Heels Offer Kevin Love

It's somewhat hard to fathom, but Lake Oswego (Ore.) High 6-foot-8 ½, 250-pound junior Kevin Love waited this long to field this pair of scholarship offers.

According to Kevin's father, Stan, his son was offered a scholarship from Roy Williams while on a half-hour conversation with the North Carolina head coach on Wednesday.

"He had a great conversation with Coach Williams," Stan Love said. "He said he'll come out and see him play this year. They seem to want him really bad."

"When your as powerful as North Carolina, you can come late for the party," Love added. "It's like the super pretty girl who walks into the party late." That's no surprise as Love, who is considered arguably the top big man in the Class of 2007. Love averaged 25.9 points as a sophomore and is Scout.com's third-ranked player in the nation.

Ohio State was the other school to recently offer. Other schools who are in the mix with Love include Arizona, UCLA, Kansas, Washington and UConn.
