ESPN 100 C Meeks updates top schools 

October, 24, 2012
There are five uncommitted ESPN 100 centers remaining. While Joel Embiid (Cameroon/The Rock) is not currently ranked, his recent play should land him on the next list so we’ll count him as one. The clear top dog out of the men in the middle is 6-foot-9, 275-pound Kennedy Meeks (Charlotte, N.C./West Charlotte).

West Charlotte was once home to Jason Parker, maybe the most dominant big man the state’s seen in the last decade. But now it’s Meeks, the owner of a state championship medal and title game MVP, who gets all the ink. He’s got a direct line on a second state crown and will get his chance come next March. Until then, he’s caught in the middle of a recruiting tussle.

“Right now I probably have a top three of North Carolina, Georgetown and NC State,” Meeks said. “It’s not officially a top three but it’s those three, Indiana and Kentucky. Kentucky has Marcus Lee so I’m not sure about that.”
