Top Juniors in a Rush to Decide
So what is going on with the rash of top juniors who have already decided on their college choice? DeMatha guard Josh Selby is bound for Tennessee, while last weekend Gonzaga's Tyler Thornton and Courtland's Josh Hairston pledged for Duke.
"It's the trend," DeMatha Coach Mike Jones said. "I'm sure some of it is a little peer pressure. Your buddies are doing it. And you're looking across at schools probably putting on a little pressure as well because you've got to get it done early. If you're recruited as one of the top three point guards in the country, they're putting pressure on all three of you that if one of the other two commits, that's who they're going with. That's the nature of the business right now."
Is this a good thing? Bad? Otherwise?
"Who knows?" Jones said. "You have so many guys changing their minds now."
