Hughes Still Wide Open

Liam Hughes, a legit seven footer who has shown excellent progress in the last year, is hearing from Oregon State, along with numerous West coast schools. <br><br> Are the Beavers the front runners for this big man?

PrepWestHoops.com talked with Liam Hughes, a 7-1, 258 lb senior center from Modesto (Calif.) Modesto Christian about the schools he has been hearing from.

The seven footer, who is originally from Great Britain, said he has been fielding calls from Oregon, Cal, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, Stanford, UC Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Colorado State and Pacific.

PrepWestHoops.com asked if any schools had emerged yet from the pack.

"Not really. I'm going to set up some home visits and then schedule some official trips after that," Hughes said, "I'm going to take my time."

Hughes is an excellent student who scored a 1210 on the SAT and carries a 3.4 GPA. He is hoping to make a decision by the fall.

Scouting reports vary on Hughes, but a big body, is a big body. Size helps underneath the basket, and what team couldn't use a 7-footer?
