A change of plans for Singler

During the Nike Memorial Day Classic, Kyle Singler indicated that he would be taking an unofficial visit to Washington this month. Additionally, the 6-foot-8, 210-pound small forward from South Medford (OR) High School said that he was planning to take some official visits before making a decision about his future. Has the No. 6 ranked player in the class of 2007 had a change of heart?
"Kyle's unofficial visit to Washington is probably not going to happen," said Ed Singler, Kyle's father. "He is planning to take some visits in the fall, but I don't think that Kyle will have time to unofficially visit Washington. He has already been to Duke, UCLA and Washington.
"Kyle is going to take some visits in the fall for sure," he added. "We just have to sit down and figure all of that out. A lot of it depends on if he decides to play football this year. Kyle does want to visit Kansas and Arizona, but anything is subject to change."
Despite the fact that many close to the situation believe that Singler will ultimately decide between Duke and UCLA, Mr. Singler indicated that his son has a high amount of interest in KU and Arizona.
"There is a great tradition at KU and Kyle knows that," he said. "He has connected well with Coach Bill Self and Coach Joe Dooley. The coaching staff has shown a lot of interest in Kyle and he knows that. They have done an outstanding job recruiting him.
"Kyle has similar feelings about Arizona," he added. "He is very high on Coach Lute Olson. Kyle has gotten along very will with Coach Olson and Josh Pastner. He knows some of the players at Arizona. Kyle is very interest in KU and Arizona."
Kyle Singler Scouting Report: Already a legitimate small forward, Singler can make all the plays. He is active around the basket, can lead the fast break, can shoot the three ball and can even run the point guard position in a pinch. With a great feel for the game, he only needs to gain strength and continue his natural progression to maintain his status as an elite prospect. –Jerry Meyer
