Time for an update

Here's a little bit of an update of the recruiting status of Kiah Stokes, a highly-touted 6-foot-3 post from Marion, Iowa.

I just spoke to her dad Greg, who is one of the greatest players in the history of the Iowa men's basketball program and he gave me a list of 10 teams in the mix with his daughter.

The list, not in any particular order, is UConn, Tennessee, Iowa, Maryland, Rutgers, Notre Dame, Georgia, Ohio State, Purdue and Oklahoma. No longer in the mix are Iowa State, Duke and Stanford.

With Kiah heading to the U.S. 17-and-under and USA Youth Olympic training camp which runs from June 8-11. Obviously if she makes the U-17 squad which is competing in the FIBA U17 World Championship from July 16-25 in Rodez and Toulouse, France, she'd be a little busy with her USA Basketball responsibilities to focus too much on the recruiting process during much of the two evaluation periods during July. Greg Stokes said it's not out of the question that Kiah takes a couple of unofficial visits this summer but he said it seems likely that she will be taking her official visits in the fall before making her decision. In other words, don't be surprised if Kiah waits until right around November's early signing period for her to make a college decision.

Speaking of USA Basketball, the list of attendees for the U-18 training camp (being held on the same days as the U-17s) should be out in about an hour. I'd expect UConn's incoming freshman class to be represented on the roster of players.
