Is Durand Scott down to two schools?
Mike Anthony of the Hartford Courant says Scott is down to UConn and Miami and will announce soon, according to UConn freshman Kemba Walker, Scott’s former teammate at Rice. The early signing period begins Wednesday.
Scott previously had cut his list to Pitt, UConn and Miami. Scott and Rice coach Moe Hicks did not answer their phones when I called for comment, and sources at Pitt, UConn and Miami say they still haven’t heard what the 6-4 guard plans to do.
Also, Anthony has an interesting post on Hasheem Thabeet and his quotes in the current ESPN The Magazine about Luke Harangody and Tyler Hansbrough.
“I played Luke Harangody and he was not tough,” Thabeet was quoted as saying. “Tyler Hansbrough? I don’t see nothing.”
