Christian Polk, the outstanding 6-foot-3, 170-pound shooting guard from Deer Valley High School in Glendale, Ariz., still has two years of high school remaining, but that hasn’t stopped some of the nations most elite college basketball programs from showing Polk a great deal of interest. While the No. 37 ranked player in the class of 2006 is still in the beginning stages of his recruitment, a number of high major programs have already expressed an interest in the Arizona native.
“I am really wide open right now when it comes to my recruitment,” Polk said. “I have talked to a number of coaches’ from different colleges and things like that, but I have not spent too much time thinking about my recruitment. I know that a lot can change during the next two years, so I just want to take my time with the process and not rush any decisions.”
It is safe to say that Polk will likely see a number of changes take place in his recruitment between now and when it comes time for him to make a decision. Until the No. 8 ranked shooting guard in the class is ready to cut his list, the Arizona native stated that he plans to consider all of his options.
“Arizona, Arizona State, Florida State, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, UCLA and Connecticut are just a few of the schools that I am interested in,” Polk said. “I haven’t really given much thought to taking any unofficial visits right now. Like I said earlier, I am really in the early stages of my recruitment and a lot can change.
“I just want to concentrate on becoming a better player,” he added. “Having a successful junior year is also important to me. I will start thinking more about my recruitment when the time is right.”
