The latest on Favors’ recruitment is officially that he is considering “all” schools, and spectators are commenting on his consistency as a player. Regarded by most as the top prospect of the 2009 class, Favors’ Atlanta Celtics pounded their first over matched opponent in the Real Deal at the Hill.
The Real Deal at the Hill tournament is played at the University of Arkansas (Fayetteville, AK), through Sunday (April 20), with only $8 all-day tickets. This is not some out of the way tournament for just Favors, there are several ACC recruits scheduled to play, including Kenny Boynton.
Arkansas is the center of the prep basketball universe this weekend with the Old School Super Regional going on in Conway, AK, with tickets only $10.
Jordan Classic on ESPN2
For those not traveling to Arkansas, you can catch some of the top prep stars from the Class of 2008 on ESPN2 tonight at 9pm in the Jordan Brand Classic. Good chance to see some guys who might be household names for ACC fans in the next couple of years.
Al-Farouq Aminu, F (Wake Forest)
Ed Davis, PF (North Carolina)
Iman Shumpert, PG (Georgia Tech)
Tony Woods, PF (Wake Forest)
One guy who is not coming to the ACC and will probably be one-and-done is point guard phenom Brandon Jennings, but I still like to watch him play. He plays with the arrogant abandon of of someone who is one step quicker than everyone on the court.
