It doesn't involve Kevin Love or Kyle Singler, but some interesting notes regarldess. Greg Hicks, probably the best college basketball recruting scout in the West Coast (and of the best in the country):
It looks like it will be a Pac-10 battle for Drew Viney, a 6-foot-6 junior small forward from Villa Park High in Villa Park, Calif. Viney told us that he has scholarship offers from Washington, Cal and Arizona State. Viney has a good-looking shot to three-point range and he has improved his ability to play in the paint. Viney figures to be among the top three or four small forwards in the west for 2007.
Luke Babbitt is only a sophomore, but he's generating strong interest from some of the elite programs in the country. Babbitt, a 6-foot-7 power forward from Galena High in Reno, Calif., is currently being recruited by the likes of UCLA, Washington, Arizona, Duke and Georgetown, among other programs. Babbitt is very skilled for a young prospect, with the ability to play equally well on the perimeter or in the paint. He should end up among the top 25 players in the country for 2008.
