E.J. Liddell narrows colleges to three
Belleville West senior star E.J. Liddell has trimmed his list of possible college choices to a final three.
Following a recent campus visit to the University of Missouri, Liddell announced the Tigers, Ohio State and Illinois are now the three schools he is still considering. According to the Belleville-News, Liddell has already visited Ohio State and has a visit to Illinois scheduled for later this month.
Some have speculated in moving up his final campus visit, Liddell is hoping to make a lasting decision sooner rather than later.
Ranked as the No. 35 recruit in the nation in a recent ESPN assessment, the 6-foot-7, 220-pound power forward averaged 20.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and nearly three assists as a junior in leading the Belleville to a Class 4A ISHA state crown.
The reigning Illinois Mr. Basketball and Gatorade Illinois Player of the Year spent part of his summer turning heads in California at the Nike Skills Academy featuring 30 of the top high school players in the country.
