Prosser has top six

The spring AAU season is well underway and for a prospect like Jordan Prosser on a high profile team, that means many weekends on the road participating in highly competitive events. It means that during that spring period, college coaches will be front and center taking a closer look. Thus far the results have been pretty positive for Prosser on both fronts as he starts to narrow his list of schools.

"Our team has done pretty well. We won the Pittsburgh tournament and then we went to Akron, but we were down to six players and didn't do as well. Last weekend we went to Kansas and lost in the semi-finals by three," Prosser said.

The 6-foot-8 power forward prospect, who is ranked in the Top 100 prospects in the Class of 2009 says he has picked up a few new offers from schools he is currently not interested in and has a list of six schools currently on his radar.

"My top six right now are Iowa, Indiana, Purdue, Wisconsin, Kentucky, and Texas A&M."

Prosser says that he spoke recently with an Iowa assistant coach and plans to be in Iowa City in June.

"I talked to Coach Walthall the other day and I am planning to be at their elite camp in late June. They are also trying to get me over for another visit pretty soon," he said.

While it appears on the surface that the Badgers do not have a scholarship available for 2009, Prosser says that the coaches are telling him a different story.

"I talked to their coaches the other day and they said that they still have a spot for me in 2009."

Purdue and Kentucky have yet to officially offer a scholarship, but they have been in regular contact. Indiana had offered a scholarship when their previous coaching staff was in place and this Friday, the day before an AAU Tournament in Bloomington, he will be meeting with Coach Tom Crean for the first time in person.

"I talked to them yesterday and they asked if I could come down on Friday to visit before the tournament. I will find out more from them on Friday when I visit there," Prosser said.
