At 6-foot-8, 199-pounds, and with blossoming small forward skills, Kyle Singler should have his pick of the litter when his time comes around. The No. 4 ranked player in the class of 2007 is wide open at this point in the process, but he did list five schools in which he has interest.
"I’m interested in Duke, Arizona, Kansas, Oregon, and Oregon State,” said Singler, who is from South Medford (Ore.) High School. “I haven’t received any offers as of yet, and it’s still early and I’m wide open."
Both Oregon and Oregon State have been to Medford this fall to watch Singler workout. The highly skilled and mobile big man is focused on refining his small forward skills.
"I’m working hard on my outside shooting and my ball handling,” he said. “I want to play small forward at the next level.
"Im working real hard on my game. I’d love to win state this year, and I think we should have a good chance."
During the Nike Hoop Jamboree, Singler displayed a glimpse of his future as he was one of the dominant players amongst the 2005-2008 participants. On the AAU circuit Singler also did more than hold his own playing for Oregon Select.
Singler is active and aggressive in the interior. He also has the perimeter skills to lead the fastbreak, shoot the three, and hit the open man.
