JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- After postponing his college announcement from last Sunday, Udoka Azubuike still has no timetable on a decision but hopes to announce sooner rather than later.

The 6-foot-11, 270-pound McDonald's All-American big man from Potters House Christian is still working with a list of North Carolina, Florida State and Kansas, with North Carolina working extremely hard.

"They've been coming to me very seriously," Azubuike said of North Carolina on Friday at practice. "Right now they don't have any other big man they are recruiting as much. Roy [Williams] has said I'm the one they are looking for. He emphasizes 'trust' a lot. It's difficult right now deciding a school. Kansas, they have good big man tradition. North Carolina and FSU, the same thing. They are all trying to get a big man who can finish in the paint. So it's difficult choosing between these three. "

After initially planning to announce his college choice on Sunday at the Hoophall Classic, Udoka Azubuike now has no plans to announce anytime soon, his guardian told SNY.tv.

"Not as of now, no date set," Harry Coxsome said Wednesday.

The 6-foot-11 Azubuike out of Jacksonville (FL) Potter's Christian is a newly-minted McDonald's All-American who nearly brought down the backboard with this two-handed dunk on Sunday in a loss to Mohamed Bamba and Westtown (Pa.). North Carolina head coach Roy Williams and assistant Steve Robinson sat courtside, and Kansas assistant Jerrance Howard was also at the event.
