Corey Stokes, the 6-foot-5, 210-pound small forward/shooting guard from St. Benedict's Prep School was one of the most impressive performers at the Nike Memorial Day Classic. While a number of high-major programs are pursing the four-star prospect, Stokes made it perfectly clear that he is high on five schools in particular.
"Connecticut, Villanova, Florida, Seton Hall and Rutgers are the schools that I like," said Stokes. "Those five schools are showing the most interest in me at this time. I have already visited Connecticut, Rutgers and Villanova unofficially."
Stokes, the No. 54 ranked player in the class of 2007, has scholarship offers from Connecticut, Rutgers and Villanova. As far as a decision goes, it's not yet known when Stokes will decide on a school.
There is a chance that the No. 13 ranked small forward in the class might take some official visits in the fall. However, Stokes might be ready to make a decision before then.
"I might take some visits when school starts," said Stokes. "If I am not ready to make a decision, I will official visit some of the schools on my list. I don't know if that will happen, but it's something that I am thinking about right now.
"I have already seen three of the schools on my list," he added. "I already know about those schools, so if I feel that I need to visit some other schools, that is something I will do. If I don't need to, I will make a decision. I just want to make sure that I make the best decision when its time to do that."
