    Oak Hill (Va.) Academy small forward Roscoe Smith has cut his list to three schools: Duke, Georgetown and UConn.

    Kansas, Florida and UCLA are off his list.

    Brian Stephens, Roscoe’s father, said there was no leader.

    Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski will have a home visit today (Wednesday). Georgetown coach John Thompson III also comes to Oak Hill today to meet with Smith and UConn coach Jim Calhoun was at Oak Hill Tuesday.

    Smith may take an official to UConn Oct. 16 for First Night, UConn’s version of Midnight Madness.

    • AZ,

      I like the SHORTENING of the LIST.
      Three allows for a quick decision, commit.
      Do not see him going to Dook.

      ucla is out.- defensive minded team.- Defense FIRST.
      kansas is out. Was the fightclub a factor?
      I can hear it know….Kansas fans blaming Taylor for putting comments on this facebook. More Kansas fans are upset about Taylor’s facebook comments.

      I ,apart of many, believe the Kansas fans have MISSED the BOAT.
      Come on…be UPSET about ALL those fights and ALLOWING the FIGHTING to continue for YEARS. Be VERY UPSET for this….Get your priorities CHECKED.

      No one would like to see their SON appear in such a video…

    • Glad to see Smith is getting closer to achieving one of his dreams. Good luck to him, he’s a terrific athlete with the ability to score in a variety of ways.

    • Yeah, shocking video douchebag. If my son ever is seen entering a van like that I would disown him. Way to stay on top of things–this story broke a week ago and all was resolved. BFD!

    • Nice to see you’re still obsessed with KU. In April when we’re cutting down the nets you’ll be the only one still chirping about FightClub. Well, a few Mizzou fans will be too.

    • I’m missing the point of the video. None of the men shown were under arrest, all were at the station for questioning and allowed to leave. If you’re worried about your SON cooperating with police I’d say you’ve got bigger issues.

    • The point of the video is that this UA loser thinks that if he shows it enough times recruits will stop considering KU as an option and that his school might benefit.

      Could there be any other reason?

      • recruiting basketball players to kansas is like recruiting an alcoholic to a new years party.
