Top Unsigned Power Forwards/Centers
Zena Edosomwan - It was a bit of a surprise to see an undecided Edosomwan during the early signing period. His took official visits to his five finalist-Cal, Harvard, Texas, USC and Washington-and could have made a decision then.
Amile Jefferson - The versatile four man has a big difficult decision to make. He four star big, according to Rivals, will sign late and decide between Connecticut, Kentucky, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Stanford, Temple and Villanova according to Zagsblog.
Tony Parker - The recruitment of four star big man, according to Rivals, has been quiet since the release of his top list. Kansas and in-state schools Georgia and Georgia Tech seem to be the darkhorse with Duke, Memphis, UCLA and Ohio State creating the most noise in his recruiting circle.
Chris Obekpa - There is plenty of upside in Obekpa. At 6-9, he does many things great like running in transition, rebounding, defending and most importantly, Obekpa plays with a non-stop motor. He is being tracked by many high-majors and a specific list of schools he's considering has not been made.
Jarnell Stokes - Stokes is already physically able to compete on the next level. He's a tough kid that thrives off finishing with contact. He's considering offers from Arkansas, Memphis, Florida, Kentucky and Tennessee.
Ricardo Gathers - Gathers is just one of St. John's former commitments on this list but unlike the others, I believe the Johnnies have the best chance of reuniting with the 6-7 forward. He recently tripped to the St. John's game against UMBC and hasn't showed much interest in other programs.
Jakarr Sampson - Sampson, was the headliner of St. John's 2011 class but after being denied eligibility, the 6-8 forward went prep and opened his recruitment. Although St. John's has stepped it up as of late, Baylor among others such as Kansas, Pitt, Louisville and Providence have all been going strong at the former Johnnies commit.
Norvel Pelle - Pelle is the latest St. John's commit that decided to re-think his initial commitment. It's unclear what schools are interested in the 6-10 big, but Washington, St. John's and San Diego State are all possibilities but that's just speculation.
