Michael Sanchez, the 6-foot-8, 220-pound small forward from Har-Ber High School in Springdale, Ark., is in no hurry to make a decision about his future. With so many schools showing an interest in the No. 65 ranked player in the class of 2007, Sanchez is going to enjoy the process and take his time.
"Michael is still wide-open when it comes to his recruitment," said Bert Sanchez, Michael's father. "He has quite a few offers on the table and schools like Wisconsin, Florida, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas, Maryland and quite a few others are recruiting Michael.
"I know that schools like Maryland, Wisconsin, Florida, Oklahoma and Arkansas have already been by the school to watch Michael play," he added. "These are just some of the schools that have been to watch him this year."
Until the time comes for Sanchez, the four-star prospect, to make a decision about his future, he will continue to focus on his junior campaign. Additionally, instead of traveling with his AAU team this summer, Sanchez will spend most of his time working with a trainer and player development coach.
"We have decided to cutback on Michael's travel this summer because I want him in the gym and working on his game," said Sanchez. "He has really improved his outside game, midrange jump shot and ability to take players off the drive. Michael will continue to work on and improve his game this summer while working with a trainer and player development coach.
"Michael is going to attend the Real Deal on the Hill, the Bob Gibbons event, one of the events in Las Vegas, ABCD Camp, NBA Camp and the Baron Davis Camp," he added. "These are the only events that he is going to attend this summer. The rest of the time will be spent in the gym and on the court."
