And the saga continues.
Westchester (Calif.) High forward Dwayne Polee Jr. was all set to announce his college decision on Saturday night at halftime of the Collision All-Star game at El Camino College in Los Angeles.
Those plans were postponed.
Polee was expected to be choosing between — in no particular order — UNLV, St. John's and Georgia.
Now, Polee will add a fourth finalist to that mix, as he plans to visit Oregon this week.
Oregon's vacant head coaching position was finally filled on Saturday, as Dana Altman, who spent the last 16 seasons at Creighton, took the gig.
Altman, oddly enough, was an assistant under UNLV coach Lon Kruger at Kansas State from 1986-89.
Polee's official visit to UNLV was in late November, when he watched the Rebels knock off then-No. 16 Louisville, 76-71.
Rumors were swirling earlier this month that Polee was on the verge of taking UNLV's lone vacant scholarship for next season, but after that didn't come through, he took a visit to St. John's, who recently hired former UCLA coach Steve Lavin.
UNLV is not sitting still while Polee waivers, hosting 6-foot-8 UCLA transfer Mike Moser — a player very similar to Polee — for a visit this weekend. Wherever Moser lands, he will have three years of eligibility remaining beginning with the 2011-12 season.
The high-flying 6-foot-7 Polee led the Comets to a second consecutive Division I state title earlier this month, and after averaging 20 points, nine rebounds and two blocks per game, he was named the Los Angeles City Section Player of the Year.
