Wednesday August 13th, 2014

Five-star recruit Skal Labissiere narrowed his college choices to six schools Tuesday, saying Kentucky, Baylor, Tennessee, Georgetown, Memphis, and North Carolina are still in the hunt for his commitment.

One school that did not make the cut was Ole Miss. reported last month Labissiere's guardian, Gerald Hamilton, had a six-figure coaching job waiting on him at the school.

Rivals ranks Labissiere, a 6-foot-11 center, as the No. 14 recruit for the class of 2015. 

Labissiere spent the last three years at Evangelical Christian School in Memphis but says going to college isn’t a sure bet.

"Overseas is an option," Labissiere told "I don't know yet for sure. We'll see. But that is a lot of money.”
