We honestly don’t even talk about [C.J. Leslie's recruiting process]. He’s still wide open. There’re a lot looking at him, and some new schools starting to come around, and he will entertain and has entertained. He’s still wide open, and we’ve made a promise to each other that we wouldn’t deal with it until the season’s over.
Tobias Harris of Dix Hills (N.Y.) Half Hollow Hills West added 20 point. The duo [Harris with Doron Lamb] were named Co-MVPs for Skip.
Roscoe Smith of Oak Hill added 22 points ... and C.J. Leslie tallied 15. Leslie added 11 rebounds.
The starters for The Goat (Orange Squad) [for the Elite 24 game] were Tristan Thompson, Jared Sullinger, C.J. Leslie, Kyrie Irving and Terrence Ross, while the starters for Skip To My Lou (White Squad) were Joe Jackson, Will Barton, Tobias Harris, Harrison Barnes and Josh Smith.
- Ross is much better than the last time I saw him play at the ESPN RISE National High School Invitational. With Mouphtaou Yarou and Isaiah Armwood headed to Villanova, Ross is going to be a beast alongside rising sophomore Justin Anderson at Montrose Christian
C.J. Leslie is still open in his recruitment, but he did provide some insight into his recruiting. Kentucky, North Carolina, Florida, Maryland and Connecticut are the five schools recruiting him the hardest, and two of them stand out to him. [Those are UNC and UK, FWIW]
Tobias Harris said his visit to Kentucky went well and that the Wildcats are firmly on his list. He will officially visit Tennessee on September 12, and he also named Connecticut, Syracuse, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Louisville and Notre Dame as schools he is considering.
