Carson not ready to make decision yet

CLEVELAND

When Scout.com's No. 69 recruit Jahii Carson committed to Oregon State back in May of 2009, the Arizona native did it with the assumption guys like Bryce Jones and a few others would follow.

Carson was playing on an AAU team with Oregon State coach Craig Robinson’s son and developed a strong relationship with the Beavers head coach.

However, Jones committed to USC, and this past April, the 5-foot-11 Carson de-committed from Oregon State.

Carson said those in the mix entering Thursday’s King City Classic were Arizona State, Arizona, Washington, Alabama, St. John’s, Indiana and Oregon State.

Free throws

- Early in the spring, Kaleb Tarczewski barely got off the bench for the New England Playaz, who are coached by former NBA coach John Carroll. Just a few months later, the 7-footer is being trailed by the likes of Bill Self, Mike Krzyzewski and Roy Williams. He has had a strong week in Indianapolis and is at the top of high majors recruiting boards.

- A number of underclassman have stood out this week at the adidas Invitational, but 2012 prospect Jeremy Hollowell was especially impressive in a late game on Wednesday. He went for 18 points in the first eight minutes of the game and finished with 20 at the half. He's a 6-foot-7 small forward that appears to be turning his game up a notch.

- Antwan Space has the potential to blow up this summer. After taking in a game and a half of Urban DFW, Space, a 6-foot-8 versatile forward, proved that he's every bit a Top 100 prospect. Last year, he was known more for his post game, he showed up in Indianapolis showing off ball skills and long range shooting. This guy drew the eye of high major programs rightfully so. He's primed for a huge month.

- Yesterday, we touted the strong play of Shabazz Muhammad. On Wednesday, I polled college coaches asking who they thought was the top player in the event. The answer? Muhammad. The Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman standout is making it known he's the best wing prospect in the class of 2012 and is gaining fans while he's doing it. He's a had a few 30-point games in Indianapolis.

- Kyle Wiltjer's rolling the dice. This spring, the Oregon native scored dual citizenship with the hopes of one day making the Canadian Olympic team. He's off to a good start. The power forward canned the game-winning 3-pointer in the 18-and-under bronze medal game.

- Wiltjer has a long list. Admittedly, he could commit from the time you read this through the signing period in November. Three schools high on his list are Gonzaga, California and Kansas.

- It's the summer time, and we're watching everything. With that said, Florida Gators fans will be happy to know that junior wing Ricardo Ledo showed up to one of the LeBron Skills Academy media sessions sporting a Gators T-shirt. He attended UF's elite camp and is one of the nation's best junior wings.
