Phaler Ready to Cut List

Villa Park rising senior Sean Phaler, one of the best shooters in the west, still has a number of schools that he's considering, but says he'd like to cut his list pretty soon...

We spoke with Sean Phaler, 6-9 PF Villa Park (Calif.) High, recently and he told us that his current list consists of Utah, Stanford, Oregon, UCLA, USC and Kentucky. Other than Kentucky, each of those schools came out to meet with Phaler during the spring contact period.

Phaler said he'd like to trim his list prior to June 21, the date when college coaches are allowed to begin calling recruits. "I want to sit down with my coach and narrow it down before June 21," Phaler said. "But we've had a lot going on and we haven't had a chance to do it yet."

Last summer, Phaler took unofficial trip to Cal, Stanford, USC and UCLA. He said he plans on taking some official trips after July.

Phaler will attend the Nike camp, along with playing at the Big Time and Fullcourt Press tournaments with his high school team. He was scheduled to attend the NBA camp this week, but he has a sprained ankle and won't be able to play.

Phaler took the SAT recently, but has yet to receive his results. He said his GPA for the last semester was 3.8.
