Maurice Harkless and Kadeem Jack Updates

As one reader pointed out recently, Maurice Harkless has decided to play at South Kent (Prep) School for his final season of high school ball, instead of Forest Hills High.  He believes this will help prepare him for college basketball.

Harkless will be joined at South Kent by potential UConn recruit Kadeem Jack.  Jack had Connecticut on his list before deciding to attend prep school, then deciding to visit North Carolina and Kentucky, then deciding on prep school again.  According to, Jack’s schools include, in addition to UConn: Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Miami (FL), North Carolina, Seton Hall, UCLA, West Virginia.  I’m not sure whether that is an updated list.  Jack will now be in the Class of 2011.

Interestingly, Jack’s new coach at Rice High School, Dwayne Mitchell, says that Jack never actually received invitations to visit North Carolina or Kentucky.  My guess is that Kentucky was interested until they signed Terrence Jones, and North Carolina was interested until they signed Alabama transfer Justin Knox.
