Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year Eric Paschall got permission to contact more than a dozen schools following Fordham's firing of head coach Tom Pecora. The 6'6 freshman announced on his Twitter page that he is down to 5 schools, including staying at Fordham. Two Big East schools made the cut as well with Providence and Villanova joining Florida and Kansas among the final 5.
Cut my list down to Fordham, Providence, Kansas, Villanova, and Florida.

To date Paschall has visited Villanova and Florida and is scheduled to visit Providence this weekend, per Jon Rothstein. No word on whether Paschall will visit Kansas but Paschall's father Juan did tell pcbb1917.com last week that no decision would be made until a visit was taken to Providence. We'll see how fast the decision comes after this weekend. Paschall will have to sit out the 2015-16 season, per NCAA transfer rules and will then have 3 years of eligibility remaining.
