Top 10 uncommitted: Where they stand
Brandon Knight, Josh Selby and Cory Joseph.There are plenty of quality high-major prospects available this spring. Here is a look at the top 10 available seniors in the Rivals150. Leading the way are three elite point guards -
PG Brandon Knight (No. 1)
Schools in the mix: Connecticut, Florida, Kansas, Kentucky and Syracuse
Knight is playing it close to the vest, but the majority of talk about his recruitment involves Kentucky and Florida. Does Knight want to be the next elite point guard to play under John Calipari, or would he prefer to play in his home state? Right now it looks like Knight wants to be the next elite point guard to play under Calipari. All but Syracuse have hosted Knight on official visits.
PG Josh Selby (No. 4)
Schools in the mix: Arizona, Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky and Tennessee
A one-time Tennessee commitment, Selby is considered by many to be a Kansas lean. He has visited the school twice and has recently cancelled scheduled visits to Connecticut and Kentucky. There is also talk of Tennessee possibly making inroads in an attempt to win Selby back. He is scheduled to announce his decision April 17 at the Jordan Brand All-Star Game.
PG Cory Joseph (No. 7)
Schools in the mix: Connecticut, Minnesota, Texas, UNLV and Villanova
Like Knight and Selby, no one knows for sure what Joseph is thinking. Most speculation, however, centers around Texas and Villanova. Joseph's teammate and fellow Canadian Tristan Thompson has already signed with Texas. Villanova would love to replace Scottie Reynolds with Joseph. All five schools have hosted Joseph on official visits.
PF Terrence Jones (No. 13)
Schools in the mix: Kentucky, Oklahoma, Oregon, UCLA and Washington
Jones' recruitment is another tough one to read. Many think it will be difficult to draw him away from the Pac-10 and the West Coast. Jeff Capel, however, has worked diligently to draw him to Oklahoma. Jones' skill set is custom made for the dribble-drive offense, but Kentucky has run a lot of sets this year and just landed another five-star power forward in Enes Kanter.
PF C.J. Leslie (No. 14)
Schools in the mix: Connecticut, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina State and Oregon
Leslie has strong ties to North Carolina State, living in Raleigh and having once been committed to the program. He has also officially visited Kentucky. There is talk of a Florida visit on the horizon, but Leslie's recruitment has been an unpredictable read. It will be interesting to see how the Kanter commitment affects Kentucky's recruitment of Leslie.
SG Doron Lamb (No. 21)
Schools in the mix: Arizona, Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma and West Virginia
The latest word concerning Lamb's recruitment is that he is truly undecided at this point. He has officially visited all of his schools except for West Virginia. Arizona has a strong connection with the shooting guard since he played travel team ball with the New York Gauchos under Emmanuel Richardson, who is now an Arizona assistant. Also, Lamb will announce his decision at the Jordan Brand Game along with Selby. Could they both be headed to Kansas?
SG Trey Zeigler (No. 26)
Schools in the mix: Arizona, Arizona State, Central Michigan, Duke, Michigan, Michigan State, Providence and UCLA
The wrinkle in Zeigler's recruitment is that his father, Ernie Zeigler, is the head coach at Central Michigan. If Zeigler continues to coach Central Michigan, will his son opt to play for him? If Zeigler doesn't return to Central Michigan, will his son wait to see if he gets an assistant job at a high-profile school. Zeigler has two official visits left, having already visited Michigan, Oklahoma and UCLA. He will likely use these two visits before making a decision.
PF Luke Cothron (No. 33)
Schools in the mix: Alabama, Connecticut, Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee
Originally from Alabama, Cothron now has the Tide and Kentucky at the top of his list after decommitting from North Carolina State. Cothron has all his official visits available to him and will likely visit Alabama and Kentucky first. The general feeling has been that Alabama is the team to beat for Cothron now that he has opened up his recruitment, but Tony Barbee is making a strong push to land Cothron at Auburn. He is expected to visit Auburn next week.
SG Terrence Ross (No. 43)
Schools in the mix: Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Oregon and Washington
The primary question about Ross' recruitment is whether he will be able to qualify academically after transferring in the middle of the school year back to Jefferson High School in his hometown of Portland, Ore. Proximity gives Oregon and Washington an advantage, but Ross -- who was attending Montrose Christian Academy on the East Coast -- is not tied to the West Coast.
PG Ray McCallum (No. 60)
Schools in the mix: Arizona, Detroit, Florida and UCLA
McCallum has officially visited Arizona, Florida and UCLA out of his final four, but there is no need for him to use an official visit on Detroit. McCallum's father is the coach of the Titans, and the general feeling is McCallum will be running the show at the point guard position for his father.
