Nine who remain uncommitted

The spring signing period is a little more than two months away and begins on April 17. As it stands, those schools in search of well-known talent have limited options, as only nine members of the current 2013 Rivals150 remain open.
Of the group, there are four five-star prospects, led by the nation's top two players, Andrew Wiggins and Julius Randle. Here's a look where each of the nine stands in their recruitment (overall rank in parentheses).
NINE UNSIGNED
Andrewwigginslbja 100
The nation's top player continues to be in a holding pattern and has only taken an official visit to Florida StateClick SF Andrew Wiggins, Huntington (W.V.) Prep (No. 1) Here to view this Link., where both his father and mother were star athletes. Wiggins maintains that he will visit KansasClick SF Andrew Wiggins, Huntington (W.V.) Prep (No. 1) Here to view this Link., KentuckyClick SF Andrew Wiggins, Huntington (W.V.) Prep (No. 1) Here to view this Link. and North CarolinaClick SF Andrew Wiggins, Huntington (W.V.) Prep (No. 1) Here to view this Link. after his senior season ends, but has yet to set up any trips. There has been a growing sentiment that Leonard HamiltonClick SF Andrew Wiggins, Huntington (W.V.) Prep (No. 1) Here to view this Link.'s Seminoles have a leg up, and until Wiggins sets up and takes other visits, it is hard not to consider Florida State as the team to beat.


Julius randle 0070   elite 24 100
A broken foot cost Randle the vast majority of his senior season, but it certainly hasn't hurt his recruitment. Randle recently completed a trip to N.C. StateClick PF Julius Randle, Plano (Texas) Prestonwood Christian (No. 2) Here to view this Link. and he's got official visits coming to TexasClick PF Julius Randle, Plano (Texas) Prestonwood Christian (No. 2) Here to view this Link. and KansasClick PF Julius Randle, Plano (Texas) Prestonwood Christian (No. 2) Here to view this Link. the next two weekends. Having already visited FloridaClick PF Julius Randle, Plano (Texas) Prestonwood Christian (No. 2) Here to view this Link. and KentuckyClick PF Julius Randle, Plano (Texas) Prestonwood Christian (No. 2) Here to view this Link. in the fall, Randle is likely the closest to making a decision of any of the four remaining five-star prospects. Randle has been consistent in telling Rivals.com that he would like to end his recruitment about the time his high school finishes its season. He's played his recruitment close to the vest, but the Longhorns have consistently been considered at or near the top behind the scenes. More recently, the Kentucky buzz has started to turn up again and Randle himself called his visit to Raleigh his best.


Aaron gordon100 1016
Just when it looked like ArizonaClick PF/SF Aaron Gordon, San Jose (Calif.) Archbishop Mitty (No. 6) Here to view this Link. and WashingtonClick PF/SF Aaron Gordon, San Jose (Calif.) Archbishop Mitty (No. 6) Here to view this Link. might be starting to separate themselves a little from the third finalist Kentucky, Gordon threw a monkey wrench into things. On Friday, the five-star combo forward confirmed that he has added OregonClick PF/SF Aaron Gordon, San Jose (Calif.) Archbishop Mitty (No. 6) Here to view this Link. back to his list. Given that the Ducks were initially cut a few months ago after he took a visit there, the fact that they have been added back to the list cannot be taken lightly. Time will tell, but the Ducks have to be considered a major player.


Frazierkeith 7 10  copy 2
For the longest time, things were quiet on the Frazier front. After getting off to a slow start during his senior year, Frazier's play -- and his recruitment -- have kicked into high gear. Over the past few weeks he's taken official visits to TexasClick SG Keith Frazier, Dallas (Texas) Kimball (No. 22) Here to view this Link. and SMUClick SG Keith Frazier, Dallas (Texas) Kimball (No. 22) Here to view this Link. and he has two more coming. Next week the five-star shooter will head out to West Texas to check out Texas TechClick SG Keith Frazier, Dallas (Texas) Kimball (No. 22) Here to view this Link. and then he'll head down to College Station to visit Texas A&MClick SG Keith Frazier, Dallas (Texas) Kimball (No. 22) Here to view this Link.. For the past few months there has been a heavy SMU buzz, and if there is a leader for his services then Larry BrownClick SG Keith Frazier, Dallas (Texas) Kimball (No. 22) Here to view this Link.'s Mustangs are likely most deserving of that designation.

Vaux (No. 29) Here to view this Link.'s was considered to be the heavy favorite, but more recently, trusted sources in Philly have said that Jordan is leaning toward heading out to Westwood (UCLA). Meanwhile, Jordan has been spending a lot of time at Temple games. Bottom line, this one appears to be a tossup.

Every year, a few high-profile guys come back open because of a coaching change and the decision to fire Kevin O'NeillClick PG/SG Kendall Yancy-Harris, Richardson (Texas) Berkner (No. 109) Here to view this Link. has made Yancy-Harris a spring option. Technically, the rangy combo guard is still signed with USCClick PG/SG Kendall Yancy-Harris, Richardson (Texas) Berkner (No. 109) Here to view this Link., but Trojans AD Pat Haden has given him permission to explore other options so long as those other schools reach out to the Trojans.

Demetriushenry 7 26 100
An athletic interior player with some face-up skill, Henry has been adding some bulk during his prep school year. Henry is down to just three programs: MiamiClick PF Demetrius Henry, Brandon (Fla.)

PF Junior Etou, Arlington (Va.) Archbishop O'Connell (No. 142)
Junior etou x2 100 5 3
The recruitment and eligibility of Etou stands at a crossroads after Deadspin.com published an article in January citing documents that showed Etou is actually 20 years old. Officials at Archbishop O'Connell have denied that the Congo native is too old to play, but the dustup has complicated his recruitment. Until things get settled, Etou's recruitment is a question mark.
