Millsap Down To 3 Schools

One of the top power forwards in Louisiana, Paul Millsap from Grambling High School has narrowed his list down to his three favorite schools.
"Louisiana Tech, Georgia and Arizona are the schools that I will choose between," he said. "All three have offered and right now I'm pretty much wide open between them."
Millsap, 6-foot-7, 215-pounds, took his first official visit in early September.
"I went to the La. Tech campus and it was a really good visit. I wasn't expecting a whole lot but they opened my eyes and showed me a good time," Millsap said. "The coaches are really cool people and I really got along with the players. They are a tight knit group and I like that plus the campus was really nice and everyone I met went out of their way to be nice to me."
The University of Georgia is another school that Millsap, who is rated a 3-star prospect by RivalsHoops.com, has a strong interest in visiting.
"I hope to visit Georgia soon, in fact I'm pretty excited that I will get the chance to go there and see the school and everything," he said. "Coach (Jim) Harrick is a good coach who I respect and I really like the offense and defense he runs. It would fit me perfectly."
Although the University of Arizona is halfway across the country from Millsap's home, the lure of the Wildcat tradition is too much for him to ignore.
"Arizona has one of the strongest basketball programs in the country and of course Lute Olsen is one of the best coaches," Millsap said. "They are a long way from home but with their record of putting their kids into the NBA I have to seriously consider them."
Millsap indicated that while he planned to officially visit Georgia and Arizona before making his decision that right now he is concentrated on his upcoming senior season.
"I know I need to get out there and see all of favorites but I'm getting ready for the season," he said. "I'm working really hard but it's something I've got to do. My coach is going to help me set up the visits so that don't interrupt my season."
Last year Millsap averaged 25 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks per contest.
