The 2014 class for Bill Self could feature one of the best small forwards in the nation.

Kevon Looney is one of the top recruits available for the college basketball class of 2014, and two local schools are both in the mix for the 6-8 junior. While there are a number of other schools involved, the Kansas Jayhawks and Missouri Tigers have both offered Looney in hopes of luring the small forward away from his home in Milwaukee. Wisconsin has also extended an offer, so Looney is also likely to face pressure to stay close from family and friends.

Rivals ranks Looney as the No. 11 player in his class, and a recent showing at the LeBron James Skills Academy gave college coaches even more reason to go after him.

Eric Bossi writes, "A strong performance at the LBJ Skills Academy was simply another feather in the cap of Looney, a skilled and aggressive swingman. And thanks to his strong start to the summer -- and particularly his performance on the boards -- Looney has become one of the most hotly recruited players in the country. He already holds offers to Georgetown, Kansas, Missouri and Wisconsin, among others."
