Big changes have happened in the recruitment of Rod Days, a 6-foot-6, 180-pound small forward from Weston (Fla.) Sagemont who has switched up his favorite schools and will plan some visits during the spring time.
Sagemont coach Adam Ross said it's still "really wide open" for Days but that Boston College, Wake Forest, Arizona State and Richmond are four possible visit destinations and that Georgia Tech, Maryland and South Carolina are also involved. A trip to Michigan might also be in the works.
Days, a three-star prospect rated as the No. 115 recruit in the 2011 class by Rivals.com, should get to see Georgia Tech on the AAU circuit. He has already visited the Gamecocks. The Florida standout took trips to Louisville and Connecticut last spring but both schools have been eliminated.
"Rod's recruitment has been pretty consistent here throughout the year but his list has changed a little bit since last year," Ross said.
"It's changed a little bit but there are a lot of guys out there interested in him and he's going to have a lot of options which is great. It's really a matter of him and his family sitting down and figuring out who's on the top of that list and then going and seeing those places."
Even though his list has significantly been altered in recent months, Ross said he still believes Days will be prepared to make a college decision this summer. He'd be surprised if it dragged into his senior year.
Final visit plans will be put off until Sagemont finishes its season. It defeated Dade Christian Saturday to advance to the class 2A state semifinals so recruiting has been put on the back burner for now.
One advantage Days has enjoyed during the recruiting process is that he's seen a lot of coaches come through Sagemont since five-star center Fabricio de Melo, a Syracuse commit, and three-star guard Will Sheehey, an Indiana pledge, have drawn a lot of national attention.
"His list has morphed into something different here," Ross said. "Rod is beginning to figure out exactly what he wants in a school and a basketball system. That eliminates some places and introduces some new ones."
