At 6-foot-8, Yates High School (TX) standout, Clyde Santee, has seen his stock roar over the years. Playing with the Houston Defenders allowed Santee to get evaluated by more coaches and programs got involved.

Santee described himself as a," long lefty scorer, good defender, winner, great passer and playmaker."

He listed Dayton, Fresno State, Long Beach State, South Carolina and Texas Tech. With the late signing period emerging faster than ever, Santee is contemplating more than just a college decision.

One of the nations most hyped point guards regardless of class has picked a school. The 5-8, 140-pound Aquille Carr (Patterson, MD) decided to end his recruitment with a verbal commitment to Seton Hall. broke the story saying, "Aquille's prep coach has confirmed the selection of Seton Hall."

Carr selected Seton Hall over offers from Baylor, Connecticut, Loyola Marymount, Memphis, South Florida, Texas and Xavier.

He becomes the first commitment in the 2013 class for the Pirates and a big one. Carr brings so much to the table as a point guard. He has a ton of heart, an ability to take over games, as well as being able to create oppurtunities for his teammates.

Seton Hall has a great one in Carr. He's going to sell tickets, win games and bring some excitement to the Seton Hall basketball program.

Stevie Clark Drawing Attention

Stevie Clark (Douglas, OK) has seen his recruitment rise over the past couple of months, due to strong performances he's put together this year. Clark, a 5-10, 170-pound point guard has proven that he's more than a elite scorer.

Clark has the ability to take over games with his deep-threat ability. He also has proven his ability to create off the dribble, make his teammates better and finish around the rim.

His playmaking ability was definitely on display at the Thanksgiving Hoopfest where he wow'd spectators with his 40-point performance.

In addition, in his most recent game, Clark posted 34 points, 13 assist and four steals.

School's that he's interested in right now are Baylor, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Marquette, Memphis, Missouri and Vanderbilt. He's also heard very briefly from Duke and would like to hear more from them.

"Jeff [Capel] offered him when he was at Oklahoma," she said. "He finally called us after the Thanksgiving game."

Arizona State, Georgia, Florida and Memphis are the newest programs involved, with the Gators coming out to his high school over Christmas break to see him play. Florida secured a commitment from Kasey Hill and it's unclear if they will continue recruiting him.

But, with his game continuously rising, I can see more colleges contacting him. Two schools have already made Clark a top target with much of their 2012 recruiting done. "[Oklahoma State] has probably come at him more than anybody besides Vanderbilt," his mother said. She also mentioned Louisville as a possible destination. Clark is a big on Louisville, despite not hearing from the Cardinals yet.

Nonetheless, despite narrowing his list down to a manageable number, he's still going to allow teams to get involved.

Luke Fischer to Indiana

After taking an unofficial visit to Indiana and taking in their upset loss of No. 2 Ohio State, 2013 forward Luke Fischer (Germantown, WI) decided to end his recruitment with a commitment to the Hoosiers.

Fischer is a strong player in the post and should be considered an early steal for Indiana. He still has to continue developing his face-up and jump shot, along with adding weight, which will help his college transition.

He's long, athletic, and energetic and is a great addition for Indiana.

Fischer, a three-star rated prospect by Rivals, held offers from Boston College, Creighton, Dayton, Green Bay, Iowa and Marquette.

He becomes the third Indiana commitment in the 2013 class joining forward Devin Davis and Collin Hartman, two in-state talents.
