While Bryce Webster has seen four schools emerge as the teams to beat in his recruitment, he is not ready to trim his list of schools just yet. The 6-foot-9, 245-pound power forward from St. Thomas Academy High School in Mendota Heights, Minn., intends to take his time with the process before making a decision about his future.
"I can tell you that Bryce has not trimmed his list of schools at this point," said St. Thomas Academy Head Coach Mike Sjoberg. "When Bryce and I last spoke, he told me that Marquette, Minnesota, Boston College and Notre Dame are his favorites."
Coach Sjoberg indicated that the four aforementioned schools are definitely the teams to beat right now. However, Webster has not yet trimmed his list of schools at this time. He intends to consider all of his options before taking the next step in his recruitment.
"Bryce also told me not to call any coaches just yet because he is not ready to eliminate any schools at this point," said Sjoberg. "I do think that Marquette, Minnesota, Boston College and Notre Dame are definitely the teams to beat, but the other schools are holding on as well."
Webster, the No. 72 ranked player in the class of 2006, is receiving interest from Arizona, Kansas, Michigan State and Ohio State.
There was a time when Webster had planned to take an official visit or two in the spring, but it looks like he will wait until the fall before taking any visits. There is a chance that he might take several unofficial visits this summer, and then make a decision about his future before the start of his senior year.
Scouting Report: Webster has the potential to be a very good big man on the high-major level. He has size, desire and decent feet and hands. He does need to tone up his body and improve his foot speed.
