Lane down to three

Three schools are left in the race for Brendan Lane, a 6-foot-9, 200-pound power forward from Rocklin (Calif.) High School.
The Rivals150 prospect has narrowed his list and will make a decision between a trio of Pac-10 schools.
"I actually narrowed it down to UCLA, Cal and Stanford [last] week," Lane told's Adam Munsterteiger.
Lane has only unofficially visited one school, UCLA, so far and hopes to see Cal and Stanford this summer. His time in Westwood was well spent, he said.
"I really liked it. It was a nice campus and I got a good feel for it," Lane said.
With Cal and Stanford's proximity to his Northern California home, Lane said geography is a nice selling point for both schools.
"Just being close to home and they are both programs I know I could go in and play right away and I just like the area that their campuses are in," he said.
The four-star forward said he made the difficult call to Washington, Oregon and Arizona State to let each staff know that he was considering other programs.
Lane missed the spring period, sitting out with a sprained ankle. He'll be back in action this summer at the It Takes 5ive tournament in Cincinnati, the adidas Super 64 in Las Vegas and the Three Stripes event in Los Angeles in July.
Now that he's back to full strength, Lane said he is hoping to continue to build on his overall versatility and skill package outside of the post.
"Probably just ball handling and quickness at the wing, defending the wing. Those are probably the main things [I'll be working on}," he said. "Versatility [is my best strength] because there are not that many big guys that can step out and shoot and take someone from the wing and then also take them down inside and post up on them."
