Signing week preview: Top available centers
The Early Signing Period begins next Wednesday. Who is left, and what do they have going on? In preparation for next week's signing period, we are taking a look at the top remaining prospects by position. Today, we discuss the top remaining centers. The top-ranked center, Makur Maker, isn't interested in college , which leaves Hunter Dickinson as the best available big man.
The latest: It's actually somewhat of a surprise that Dickinson hasn't announced a decision yet, and for a while it seemed like he had a new leader every few weeks. He's seen the four remaining programs and has been mulling a final decision for a few weeks now. The expectation is that he should choose early. Coming down the stretch, Michigan looks to have the upper hand and he could be the first high-end traditional big man to pick Juwan Howard.
The latest: That's right, Omoruyi still has 13 schools involved and there's no certainty that he won't let others jump in. For the time being he's pretty much shut things down until after the season and we aren't expecting much movement with him anytime soon. Arizona State, Auburn and Kentucky are just a few thought to be in good position, but realistically speaking, nobody has a feel for what Omoruyi may do.
The latest: As has always been expected, the 7-footer's decision is coming down to the two in-state high majors. He was on both campuses within the last week and his recruitment has been one of the best two-team battles in the 2020 class. The mobile senior is set to announce his college decision during a press conference at his school on Monday morning. Our FutureCast pick is currently favoring Iowa, but nobody feels very certain about which school he may choose.
The latest: He was just at Auburn last weekend, visits Arkansas this weekend and will see Texas A&M next weekend. Will he have enough time to make a decision before the end of the signing period? Maybe not. But, if he doesn't it shouldn't be too long before the skilled big man makes his choice. Momentum is starting to build for Arkansas and Eric Musselman to load up on in-state prospects for 2020 and Williams is starting to look like he may be on the "Muss Bus."
The latest: A native of Georgia who moved to the United States a few years ago, Gigiberia has taken official visits to Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt. He's currently on campus at TCU and while he was initially expected to wait until the spring it looks like an early decision could be coming. If a decision happens early, TCU could be the team making a push here.
