As we all know, 4-5 star power forward Norvel Pelle has been all over the map with his recruiting over the last couple of years. Pelle was originally part of the 2011 class, but eventually reclassified to 2012, and even now is still undecided on where he'll be playing in the 2012-13 season.
Pelle had interest from schools like Oregon, Washington, UCLA, and St. Johns, but we still don't know where he'll end up. UTEP was also in the running, but in my own opinion (asalom), it is becoming less and less likely that he will become a Miner. In any case, here's a nice piece from SoCal Recruit Spot.
2012 5-star Power forward Norvel Pelle remains unsigned and may impact the 2012-13 NCAA basketball season like few others. I break down, and the enigmatic big man lists 7 schools as potential destinations.
Excerpt: On the other hand (and as I am anticipating), should Norvel Pelle prove committed and dedicated for having experienced the eligibility roller coaster, his game may not hold an identifiable ceiling. A focused Pelle, open to coaching and responsive to instruction, may harness God-given talents matched only by college basketball's elite. No stretch in projecting 13-15 points, 8-10 rebounds, and 3-4 blocks per game ('12-'13) and NBA Draft stock in the 15-20 pick range. Should, as video and Pelle imply, he arrive on a D1 campus having refined his ball handling and sporting a jumper consistent out to 15 feet, the 6'10 Power forward may prove nothing short of dominant. 18-20 points a game would be within reason and I would expect to find Pelle an early draft night selection with strong probability as a Lottery selection.
