Jennings nearing a decision

Developing into the mold of the modern day hybrid forward, 2009 four-star prospect Milton Jennings is a coveted prospect. Only five schools, however, are left standing in the pursuit of the 6-foot-9, 200-pound prospect from Summerville (S.C.) Pinewood Prep, and two of those schools stand above the rest.
Clemson, Florida, Georgetown, UCLA and Virginia comprise Jennings' top five. But time might be running out on Georgetown, UCLA and Virginia since Jennings is poised to make a decision and he has only visited Clemson and Florida out of his top five schools.
"I plan on making a decision at the end of this season," said Jennings. "I don't have any more visits scheduled. It's possible I could take a visit, but I could make my decision without taking any more visits. Clemson and Florida are sort of at the top of my list."
Both Clemson and Florida share similar qualities that impress Jennings.
"I really like the coaching staff at Clemson. They have good kids on the court, and I talk to them a lot and have a good time with them. The atmosphere at Clemson is great and the weather is good. It's a great place to play basketball and go to school.
"Basically it is the same for Florida. Coach Donovan and his assistants are great. They have good kids on the team, and I had a chance to play with a lot of the freshmen down there and really enjoyed it."
Averaging 19.4 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks per game for 19-4 Pinewood Prep, Jennings is a dangerous inside/outside scoring threat.
"I'm really happy with the way I'm shooting the three," he said. "It is really dropping right now. My greatest strength is creating mismatches, so when a big is on me I operate outside and when a smaller guy is on me, I go inside."
Jennings is the No 58 ranked prospect in the class of 2009.
