  • Adam Finkelstein has released the schedule for the National Prep Showcase to be held Nov. 21-23 at Bryant College in Smithfield, R.I. Among the standout players expected to participate will be Charlotte-bound Chris Braswell and UMass commit Freddie Riley of Hargrave Military; Texas commit Avery Bradley of Findlay Prep; West Virginia commit Danny Jennings of St. Thomas More; Georgia State-bound Rashanti Harris and uncommitted Arsalan Kazemi of The Patterson School; Kansas State commit Jordan Henriquez of the Winchendon School; and uncommitted Sean Kilpatrick of Notre Dame Prep.

    Providence and Cincinnati are the top two teams in the mix for 6-foot-5 shooting guard Sean Kilpatrick of Notre Dame Prep.

    “The two visits he now has scheduled are Cincinnati and Providence,” Notre Dame Prep coach Ryan Hurd said Monday. “I don’t anticipate any other visits at this time.”

    Hurd said Kilpatrick will visit Cincinnati this coming weekend and Providence the weekend of Oct. 24.

    Darnell Dodson, a 6-6, 210-pound small forward from Miami Dade College, verbally committed to Memphis after taking a weekend official visit there.

    Dodson joins Miami Dade teammate 6-9 PF Will Coleman in the Memphis recruiting class for 2009. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.

    Memphis assistant Orlando Antigua was the point man on the recruitment. Antigua was an assistant under Jamie Dixon at Pitt when Dodson, originally from Greenbelt (MD) Eleanor Roosevelt, initially committed to the Panthers in 2006 and enrolled the following summer. He was later informed by the NCAA Clearinghouse that he had not qualified academically. He left Pitt and enrolled at Miami Dade, hoping to return to Pitt in 2009.

    Arsalan Kazemi knows where he will take his official visits. The question is, When will he take them?

    Kazemi, a 6-foot-7 combo forward at The Patterson (N.C.) School originally from Iran, wants to visit Maryland, Seton Hall and Rice, but must have an SAT score before he can make any visits.

    Kazemi took the SAT this past Saturday and doesn’t expect the test results until at least Oct. 18.

    Maryland’s Midnight Madness is Oct. 17, meaning Kazemi couldn’t visit Maryland for that event if he doesn’t get his score back in time.
