We’ve already extolled on the virtues of Lincoln senior Lance Stephenson, but he is our One to Watch this week for a different reason. This week Stephenson is expected to make a decision between on where he will play in college, either St. John’s or Kansas. Stephenson, long expected to go to Memphis, withdrew his commitment after John Calipari left the Tigers to coach Kentucky.
Stephenson’s decision could be made for him. The Jayhawks, believed to be Stephenson’s first choice, are expected to sign Xavier Henry- the ESPN rated No. 1 prospect in the country. Should Henry sign with Kansas, Stephenson might head to the Red Storm by default.
No one likes being a second choice, but I’m sure the Johnnies will happily stomach the idea of pairing Stephenson with Paris Horne, DJ Kennedy, and Anthony Mason Jr. Will they get the chance? We’ll find out this week.
