Latest on Mookie Jones

Rumors are swirling that Mookie Jones to Syracuse is a done deal, but Peekskill High head coach Lou Panzanaro said that wasn't the case as of 9:45 Friday morning when he dropped Mookie at the airport for his official visit to Cuse.

"There has been no discussion of it being a done deal," Panzanaro said Friday afternoon. "As of a quarter to 10 this morning, he was planning to take his other two visits (to Rutgers and St. John's)."

Still, Panzanaro conceded that Syracuse has been, and remains, Mookie's "top choice."

"That has been his initial top choice, I'm not sure that's changed," Panzanaro said. "He's indicated some very favorable things to me about the other schools he visited, Marquette and DePaul. He's never placed them above Syracuse."

Of course, anything could happen this weekend on the visit or in the coming days.

"I don't know that he's not going to come back and say he wants to go to Syracuse," Panzanaro said. "That could've happened with Marquette or DePaul, and it could happen with Rutgers or St. John's."
