Five in the Mix for Jankovic
Jankovic focusing on five schools
Stefan Jankovic, a 6-11 center from Huntington (West Va.) Prep by way of Canada, is down to five schools.
Syracuse, Missouri, Purdue, Florida State and Wake Forest are on his list, according to Huntington coach Rob Fulford.
The coach said Jankovic will visit Missouri this coming weekend, Florida State the weekend of Sept. 10 and Syracuse one of the two following weekends.
He is then planning to visit Purdue the first weekend in October. He has already taken an unofficial to Wake Forest.
"Stefan's been quoted as saying that Wake Forest is probably his favorite," Fulford said. "But all these other schools are in the mix. It's not like they're a clear-cut favorite."
Fulford believes the CIA Bounce big man has a huge upside at the college level.
"He's grown, he's 6-11 now," Fulford said. "He's extremely skilled. I wouldn't say he's a prototypical European kid since he's from Canada, but he can shoot. He's a matchup nightmare.
"He's just gotta stay healthy. "He's out now with a stress fracture in his shin. Once he gets healthy and gets more aggressive on both ends of the floor, he's oozing with talent."
Fulford said that 6-9 power forward Elijah Macon will also visit Pittsburgh this weekend. West Virginia and Maryland are also in the mix for visits. Macon is also hearing from Kansas State and Tennessee.
Negus Webster-Chan, a 6-6 small forward who decommitted from Louisville, will trip to Iowa State this weekend, and Fulford said they were "in the driver's seat" as far as his recruitment.
Still, he added that Webster-Chan, is "not doing anything until the spring" in terms of signing, and that Macon might also sign late.
