Greg Monroe, the No. 1 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, is still expected to narrow his school list Friday. However, the number of schools on the list might be different than expected.
Monroe, a 6-foot-10, 226-pound power forward from Harvey (La.) Helen Cox High School was expected to narrow his list to three or four schools. But now, the number is up to five.
"After talking with Greg today, he is going to narrow it down to five schools," said Helen Cox head coach Tyron Mouzon. "and he'll definitely take all five visits."
Baylor, Connecticut, Duke, Georgetown, Kansas, LSU, USC and Texas are all hoping to make the cut after conducting in-home visits this month.
Greg Monroe scouting report:
A smooth athlete at 6-foot-10, Monroe has an all around skill package that is only going to get better. The lefty has great court awareness and passes the ball extremely well. He is extending his shooting range and is developing scoring moves going to his right. When going to his left, he is a force. Strong on the boards and a shot blocking threat, Monroe also has the quickness to guard on the perimeter. A year younger than most prospects in his class, Monroe has an extremely high ceiling.
