John Wall now #1
Rival.com has updated their 2009 rankings and now has NC State target John Wall (6’3″, PG) as their #1 overall player.
Xavier Henry drops UNC
In a move that surprises no one, Xavier Henry (6’6″, SG), has dropped UNC from his list of considered schools. UNC has focused for a while on Nolan Dennis (6’5″, SG), and they already have Dexter Strickland(6’3″, PG\SG), so it’s probably more an attempt to load up at positions. The other thing I notice about the SG recruiting is that it seems like the top three for every one of these players is UNC, Kansas and Memphis.
One name I’ve not yet mentioned is Lorenzo Brown (6’5″, SG), a guy who seems to be leaning toward NC State. I’m going to have more on Brown in the near future.
