Linas Kleiza, a husky 6-7, 240 pound power forward from Montrose Christian in Rockville, Md., has six major Division I scholarship offers on the table this fall.
Rivalshoops.com caught up with Montrose Head Coach Stu Vetter at the recent Charlie Weber Invitational Tournament in College Park, Md., and he said that Kleiza has been offered by Missouri, UConn, Florida State, N.C. State, Virginia and St. John's.
It's conceivable that Kleiza could take some trips to some of these schools this fall, Vetter said, though it's unclear if he will actually commit and sign early.
Kleiza is one of the top power players in the Class of 2003. Despite his huge frame, he explodes to the goal quickly, and is able to finish on contact. He can also step out to hit midrange face up jumpers, but his most important handiwork comes in the paint.
Rivalshoops.com will keep you posted on Kleiza's situation this fall, and into the winter should he opt to sign late, so stay tuned.
