One of the top players in Kentucky's 2011 class is George Fant of Warren Central. Fant has already received offers from several schools and hopes to continue to improve his stock this summer.

After leading his team into the Sweet 16 as a junior, Warren Central's (Ky.) George Fant has received offers from several schools at this point but he's hoping for more. "I just got an offer from Seton Hall," said Fant. "Southern California has called me. They are ready to offer me. Purdue is ready to offer. Florida International, Western Kentucky and Murray have offered. Colorado State had offered too," he said. "I've also heard from Cincinnati."

The 6-foot-7, 235-pound forward has great size and athleticism. But he's looking to add more skill to his game. "I get to the basket really well. I have a nice 15-footer. I'm improving from the three and I rebound the ball well," said Fant.

"I want to get better at handling the ball. That's what I really want to work at," said Fant.

While offers are already in hand, Fant still feels like he could have done more for his team last season. "I played good. I probably could have did a lot better at state. I can't change things now, but I did pretty good," he continued.

Fant is playing with All-Ohio Red this spring and feels like his performance has been solid thus far.

"I've been playing good. Colleges are looking at me and they are calling a little more," Fant said.

There's no time for a decision at this point for Fant. "I'm wide open," he said. "I haven't narrowed it down. I'm just waiting until after my high school season," he continued.

Before making his decision, Fant has a few goals in mind. "For Warren Central, I want to get my team better and get ready for Rupp," he said. "In AAU, I want to get exposure and improve my game."
