Ledo's recruitment still wide open

ESPN's Adam Finkelstein checks in today on his recruiting blog with Notre Dame Prep swingman Ricardo Ledo, who has yet to list any favorites among the many schools that are lining up for his services.

Kentucky is among the most notable on the list, and was thought to be the favorite before the Providence native gave then-PC head coach Keno Davis a phone call Christmas Eve to give his commitment. The pledge to the Friars lasted a little over a month before he decided to open up his recruitment again.

"I don't have any favorites right now," he told Finkelstein. "I'm just trying to feel the process out and take some visits."

All that said, the Friars and new head coach Ed Cooley are still very much in the mix here. As Finkelstein writes:

Don't expect that to discourage new Providence coach Ed Cooley though because he shares similar roots to Ledo, who has made his top recruiting target since taking over the Big East program last month. That's fine by Ledo as he says the Friars are still very much an option for him.

"I like Coach Cooley," he said. "He actually knows a lot of my family. They're definitely still on my list."

Outside of Providence's campus, Ledo says he had only seen Syracuse and West Virginia, having attended the Orange's Team Camp two years ago and played in the West Virginia Jam Fest last summer, before seeing UConn's campus unofficially last week.

"I want to see more places and get a feel for the schools," he said.

Another place Ledo says he definitely wants to see this time around is Kentucky.

"UConn is recruiting me hard, Kentucky is coming hard, and Providence hard," he said. "West Virginia, Texas, Florida, UCLA, and Louisville too."
