Remekun Getting Closer To Decision

Cory Remekun has an interesting mix of schools he is considering. The power forward from Mesquite High School in Texas has scholarship offers from schools across the country and several different conferences: the Big Ten, Conference USA, Atlantic 10, Missouri Valley, WAC and Sun Belt.

"I'm just sort of wide open right now," Remekun said on Sunday night. "I'm just looking for the right fit."

The 6-foot-8, 195-pound forward has already taken official visits to Utah State, Missouri State, Western Kentucky and Saint Louis University. This weekend, he could decide to make his fifth and final official visit to either Penn State or Tulane.

"Whichever one I feel more comfortable with," Remekun said, "whichever one I want to check out more."

Remekun said he has scholarship offers from all six of the schools he's visited officially or is considering visiting. And he said he doesn't have any favorites at this time.

"They are all pretty even at this point," Remekun said.

Whoever lands the Texas native will be getting an athletic power forward who needs to gain strength and add muscle mass but who could be a factor in the paint on both ends of the floor as a hard-working rebounder and also a defensive presence because of his length.

"My strengths are blocking shots and rebounding, being an active player, finishing and hitting jumpers," Remekun said. "I have to work on dribbling, and work on my footwork a little more."

The Mesquite High post player made his official visit to Utah State over the weekend of Sept. 12, visited both Missouri State and Western Kentucky the weekend of Sept. 26 and made his official visit to Saint Louis this past weekend.

Remekun enjoyed his most recent recruiting trip to the Midwest and was impressed by coach Rick Majerus, who is entering his second season in charge of rebuilding the Billikens.

"I liked the practices," Remekun said. "They worked real hard. They should be good. I liked the coaching staff a lot. Coach Majerus is a real good coach. I like the city. It's a basketball school, too."

When he thinks about his first four official visits, Remekun said he sees positives in each of the schools he has visited as well as wherever he may end up for his next visit.

That leaves him wide open and trying to find the right fit, while planning to make his decision before the state of his high school season and in time to sign during the early signing period in November.

"I'm probably going to wait until all the visits are done and then start sorting teams out," he said.
