Adam Zagoria covers basketball at all levels. He is the author of two books and an award-winning journalist whose articles have appeared in ESPN The Magazine, SLAM, Sheridan Hoops, Sports Illustrated, Basketball Times and in newspapers nationwide.
Anthony Bennett, the much sought after big man from CIA Bounce and Findlay Prep, listed on Twitter 10 schools he is considering.
The 6-foot-8 Bennett listed Kentucky, UConn, West Virginia, Oregon, Pitt, Florida, Missouri, UNLV, Washington and Ohio State.
The No. 3 power forward in the Class of 2012 per Rivals, Bennett will likely sign late, according to CIA Bounce coach Mike George.
“As far as schools and his decision I think he wants to wait until late so he can make sure of coaching situations, other players going in, etc.,” George said last month. “He doesn’t want to be a kid that commits and later changes his mind.”
He added: “His upside is tremendous because the better his ball-handling gets, the more unstoppable he become. He shoots it so well from behind the arc and he has tremendous athletic ability. And you know he’s only scratched the surface of his ability.”
