Shaq narrows it down

After Shaquille Stokes‘ visit to Oahu from Thursday night to Saturday night, this is known: the Lincoln (N.Y.) High point guard still has Hawaii in his sights, despite some less-than-ideal weather during his stay.

He was originally planning to visit Western Kentucky next week, but said last night that he “most likely” would not and was going to decide between UH and Colorado State sometime in the coming days.

“It was some bad weather, but overall it was fun, a great atmosphere on campus,” Stokes said on the phone prior to boarding his flight back to New York. “I love hanging out with Coach Gib and the rest of the coaching staff.”


Oh, and most importantly, Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there.

    I hope Shaq realizes that they already signed a HS Cody Mann and that they have their starting PG returning from last year.
