Georgia's No. 1 senior basketball recruit picks Arizona

Kobi Simmons, the 6-foot-5 guard who has led St. Francis to back-to-back Class A private-school champions, last weekend became the final top-10 senior boys basketball recruit in Georgia to make his college choice.

Simmons will play at Arizona, he announced Saturday on ESPN. Ohio State and Kentucky were his other finalists.

Simmons, a four-year starter with more than 2,000 career points, is averaging 26.4 points as a senior. He scored 34 points and had 11 rebounds and nine assists on Saturday in a 94-92 overtime victory over Lone Peak, Utah, at the Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass.

Simmons had another big day Sunday, when he was named to the McDonald's All-American All-Star Game in Chicago. He joins Miller Grove guard Alterique Gilbert as Georgia players in what is the most prestigious high school all-star game in the country.

Here are the consensus top-10 senior prospects in Georgia, according the 247Sports. Note that two are going to Harvard – Chris Lewis of Milton and Robert Baker of Walker. Harvard, coached by Tommy Amaker, has landed three four-star prospects. The fourth is point guard Bryce Aiken of New Jersey.
