has interest in USF according to this article.

http://blogs.tampabay.com/usf/2010/03/junior-college-wing-poland-has-usf-in-final-3.html

Highlights

Jawanza Poland, a 6-foot-4 guard/forward from Wichita who is rated as one of the top wing in all of junior college basketball.

Poland, who is at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas this season, has an advantage on most junior college recruits because he'll have three years of eligibility -- he redshirted this past season at Hutchinson, unable to play after transferring from Cowley College. Poland made an official visit to USF two weekends ago, and said Wednesday he has USF in his final three schools, along with Oklahoma and hometown Wichita State.

"They have a good team coming back -- they'll be pretty good in the Big East next year," said Poland, who plans to visit Oklahoma next week before making his decision. "My visit to USF was pretty good -- I liked the facilities, the academics there, and it seems like a nice place to live."

Poland averaged 13.5 points a game as a freshman at Cowley and was named Freshman of the Year in the Jayhawk Conference's East division. One of USF's biggest needs this off-season is finding consistent outside shooters, and that's a strength of Poland, who hit 38 percent of his 3-point attempts at Cowley.

"Probably my best strength is that I'm a good outside shooter," said the 205-pound Poland. "I believe I can get to the goal any time I want to, so I have a good inside drive game."

I hope they are recruiting his teammate Robert Goff, 6-9 PF/C also. He may have reclassified to the 2011 class. Still should go after him though.

If we get this guy we sure are going to be very athletic. Haynes, Robertson, and this guy are GREAT leapers. I just hope they can play in this league.

So does this mean we have backed off of michael haynes and Melvin? At least if we do get this guy he would have three years left like that jp olukemi guy I wish we would have gotten.

I believe Melvin will visit us before making a decision. Don't know about Haynes

He has canceled his visit to OU this weekend which was our chief competition for this highly though of JC payer.

Go to his facebook page and Poland has the USF logo up as his picture for viewing. Looks like a strong indication to me that he will be committing to the Bulls soon if he hasn't already.

Here's the link to his facebook profile: http://www.facebook.com/jawanzap

Here's a link to an OU message board. They started out talking about how he was a lock, but things change.

    With the climate going on in NCAA athletics, you’re either moving forward at a hard pace or you’re not. I think what intrigued me the most is they’re very determined to become a big player nationally.

    Act like you’ve been there before. Turns out, for many of us, we haven’t been there before.
