The Division One interest in Blatche is also getting stronger this week. "Every school in the Big East has offered me plus Arizona," Blatche said. "Syracuse, West Virginia, St. Johns, and Rutgers are the schools that I am most interested in as of now."
When asked if there was a leader out of the four he responded by saying, "I really don't know probably Syracuse right now. They want me to play the 4 spot there. I don't want to go too far away from home and want to go to a place where I can play immediately."
Blatche said he would like to make a decision in the next two to three
months. Blatche will be playing AAU basketball for Syracuse-Rochester Area Players this summer and will attend South Kent Prep School in the fall.
Blatche is a 6-foot-11, 225-pound Power Forward/Center that was named Central New York Player of the Year in 2004. He averaged 24 points, 17 rebounds, and 8 blocks this past season as he led Syracuse Henninger to a Section III title. Blatche is widely considered to be one of the top 20 prospects in the nation in the 2005 class.
