Only two five-star prospects haven't signed with a school during the early signing period. And it looks unlikely that one of those prospects Ben McLemore will sign before the early period is over.
"I'll be shocked if he (McLemore) signs early," McLemore's coach Steve Smith of Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill Academy told Rivals.com on Monday.
McLemore, a 6-foot-5, 185-pound wing prospect, would like to sign early but his mother would prefer that he wait until the spring.
"Ben would like to sign early and is leaning towards Kansas," said Smith. "But his mother wants him to wait. If he does wait, I don't know what will happen. I'm sure a bunch of other schools will try to get involved.
"We have fall break next weekend and his mother really wants to sit down and talk with Ben. That is after the early period is over, though."
Missouri is presently the only other school in the running with Kansas for McLemore. Kansas has already missed on top point guard target Josiah Turner. Losing out on McLemore, its top wing target, would be a tough pill to swallow for the Jayhawks.
McLemore, who is from St. Louis, Mo., is the No. 17 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
