We spoke with Harden last night and he told us that he's particularly interested in a Pac-10 program.
"I'm open right now," said Harden. "But I do like Stanford a lot. I've been talking with them and they came out to my game yesterday.
Harden recently went to a Cardinal game.
"I went there for the Oregon game," said Harden. "I like their new facilities, and I love the school, but I want to keep my options open."
Harden told us that UC Davis, Valparaiso and USC all offered scholarships last summer.
For the season, St. Mary's is 11-2 in league play and Harden is the leading scorer in his league.
