Hoop Recruiting Notes ...

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):

Corbin Moore, a 6-9 sophomore center from Los Alamitos High in Los Alamitos, Calif., told us recently that he's been receiving early interest from UCLA, Arizona, Stanford, Washington and Notre Dame. Moore said that UCLA has been his favorite school for some time, as his father graduated from UCLA and his sister is currently a freshman in Westwood. Moore has a nice face-up game and he moves well for a young big man. With continued development, we expect him to be among the top post players in the west for 2008.

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.

Here is the story from Fair and Balanced. Recruiting is fun when you have a competent coach leading the program.
