Since returning home from his official visit to Kansas, Kyle Singler has done a lot of soul-searching and thinking. He's thought about Kansas. He's thought about Duke. He's thought about Arizona. Despite all of this, Singler, the No. 4 ranked player in the class of 2007, is having an extremely difficult time coming up with a decision. With the week slowly coming to an end, when will Singler be ready to announce?
Many believed that Singler, a five-star prospect, would have made a decision about his future by now. Having officially visited Arizona, Duke and Kansas, it appeared that he would give the nod to the Blue Devils shortly after his visit to KU was complete.
However, Singler has not yet made a decision about his future. It appears that the decision making process is much harder than he originally envisioned it to be. According to Aouth Medford head coach Dennis Murphy, a decision will likely be made next week.
"Kyle has not yet made a decision on a school," said Murphy. "He is still trying to figure out what to do next and he is still putting things in place. Kyle is really trying to decide what he wants. An announcement probably will not be made this week.
"That could all change, but I would say that a decision will be made next week," he added. "That is my guess right now."
When Singler does put an end to the recruiting process, it will allow the 6-foot-8, 210-pound small forward to concentrate on his senior season at South Medford (OR) High School.
After a number of setbacks, player and coach are hoping to bring a State Championship to South Medford High School.
"I have never coached a player like Kyle before, never," he said. "Kyle is simply in a class by himself. He has been a three-year starter for me, so we hope to hang a State Championship banner in the gymnasium before he graduates.
"We finished in fourth place during Kyle's freshman year," he added. "We finished in sixth place during his sophomore year and second place last year. We hope to win it all this year. That's our goal."
Kyle Singler Scouting Report: "Perhaps the most complete player in the class of 2007 as a true three position player, Singler shoots the three with a feathery touch and can also score off posting up and off the dribble. He also passes and rebounds at a high level. Also a great horizontal athlete, Singler can defend a guard as well as guard a post player." - Jerry Meyer of Rivals.com.
