Five Showing Stanback Interest

Chace Stanback, an elite 6-6 junior wing from Los Angeles Fairfax who looked particularly good in the Las Vegas Easter Classic, has five primary schools from the Pac-10 and ACC showing strong interest in him...

Chace Stanback, 6-6 SR SF/SG Los Angeles (Calif.) Fairfax, had a great showing this past weekend in Las Vegas. Stanback is a versatile player and he did a little bit of everything for the Rising Stars of America. He scored from the perimeter and inside, he defended well and he did a good job of rebounding. His ball-handling appears to have improved as well in the last six months.

One of Stanback's best attributes is his feel for the game. He rarely forces the action and his decision-making is outstanding.

We spoke with Stanback's father on Saturday and asked about his son's recruitment.

"The five main schools we're hearing from right now are Georgia Tech, Arizona, Washington, North Carolina and UCLA," said Stanback.

Asked if the list is pretty firm at those five schools, Stanback said, "No, we're still open to hearing from other programs."

Stanback said there is no rush for his son to make a decision.

"It will be sometime before the start of his senior year," said Stanback. "Right now, we don't have any visits lined up and we haven't talked with any of the schools about setting dates for visits."

We asked Mr. Stanback what his son is looking for in a school.

"A place with good academics, someplace where he feels like he fits in," said Mr. Stanback. "He's a team player, so it needs to be someplace with the right kind of program and system for him. As far as getting playing time, that's going to depend on him. He has to earn time no matter where he goes.

Mr. Stanback previously told us his son is doing fine in school and will have no trouble qualifying.
