Few remaining "Big Men" for 2008

By Bill Hodge - December 14, 2007


Although the early signing period for Class 2008 has passed, many programs are still searching for big men. Among the latest prospects are Clayton Vette, who is transfering from Iowa State, Brice Massamba of Henderson-Findlay Prep, Nev., and Will Creekmore, who is leaving Boston University. 6-10 Robby Goldsmith of Melbourne-Eau Gallie, Fla (3.83 GPA) has suddenly drawn interest from fourteen D-1 colleges. During the last four games, he recorded 26 points, six rebounds and four blocks, then 20-15-4, 23-7-3 and 23-10-13 (thirteen). Some players still need to improve qualifying scores and more transfers are expected throughout the season.
