Despite the fact that Jason Bohannon is just three games into his junior campaign, a number of coaches’ from high major colleges have already stopped by to get a closer look at the 6-foot-3, 170-pound combo guard from Linn-Mar High School in Marion, Iowa. With the season just getting started, it appears that several other coaches’ are planning to stop by the gym in hopes of evaluating the No. 100 ranked player in the class of 2006.
“Man, I have been really busy the last week,” Bohannon said. “We had a big game against our cross-town rival and ended up winning the game by 12-points. They made a run at us in the fourth quarter, but we closed out the game with a 13-5 run. We are 3-0 on the season and I feel that I am playing pretty good right now.
“I scored 20-points, grabbed 8-rebounds and had 7-assists on Saturday night,” he added. “We have another game on Tuesday and then on Friday. The season is going good right now, but I just hope that continues.”
As far as his recruitment goes, Bohannon, the No. 23 ranked point guard in the class of 2006, is receiving interest from Stanford, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan State, NC State, Purdue, Wisconsin and Northern Iowa. While Bohannon is just three games into the regular season, several coaches’ have already been by the gym to watch him in action.
“Coach (Steve) Alford from Iowa came up on Tuesday to watch our game,” Bohannon said. “Coach (Trent) Johnson from Stanford was up to watch me for our first game. I also know that coaches’ from Wisconsin, NC State and Illinois are planning to come watch me play.
“I think it’s great that all of these coaches’ are coming to watch me play already, but my recruitment is pretty much the same as it always has been. I would really like to focus on my junior year of basketball, and then I will start spending more time on my recruitment. I do plan to take all five official visits before making any decisions about my future, but that is the only decision that I have made about my recruitment.”
