Recruiting Insider: April 1, 2007 - April 7, 2007

Beasley Going to K-State

Weekends aren't premium blogging hours, but here's a must-read item. Mike Beasley will go to K-State. The Wildcats named promoted assistant Frank Martin head coach and promoted key recruiter Dalonte Hill to associate head coach, which was the key to keeping Beasley bound for the little apple. KC Star columnist...

Big Times for Twyman

It's been a big week for Sherwood's Deontay Twyman, the first basketball-football All-Met in nearly 20 years. Here's some video and here are the All-Met teams, which are in today's paper. Gazette columnist Brian Heard also weighs in. As for Twyman's future, while he says he prefers football, my bet...

That said,...

Cap Classic Reviews

Here are the links, I'll have my two cents up shortly: Virginia Tech recruits had a big night, led by MVP Augustus Gilchrist. A lesser-known player hopes a strong effort in the prelim game will get him some college looks. Here's how the DC Times saw things....

No Love in Huggyville

It's Good Friday, but plenty of recruiting news to talk about today. Bob Huggins is headed to West Virginia, but it is uncertain what that means for Mike Beasley. As I wondered yesterday, a 27-year-old with ties to Beasley and other recruits could be K-State's choice. Huggins said he will...

Can a Player Land a Job for a Coach?

Ok, it's 6 p.m. and things are really heating up here at Comcast Center for the Capital Classic. Gotta be at least 100 folks here for the prelim game that tips in two minutes. It's also way past premium blogging time. But... I wanted to post for all the loving...

Interesting Coaching Method

DeMatha's Mike Jones will coach the local team in Thursday's Capital Classic. And he found a unique way to select his starting five: Best 2-of-3, 8-minute games at yesterday's practice, winners start. The White team won, as Pittsburgh recruit Darnell Dodson hit a game-winning three-pointer from the left wing. So...

Nickelberry Keeps Hitting D.C.

Seems that I failed to follow up on this last week. Largo G Kwame Morgan, who averaged 27.5 points this past season, will play for Hampton. Lions Coach Lewis Howard said Morgan picked Hampton over Northeastern. Hampton Coach Kevin Nickelberry, who has plenty of D.C.-area ties, had five local players...

Peterson In Limbo

Caught up with a few players, including DeMatha point guard Jeff Peterson, yesterday after the local team practiced for Thursday's Capital Classic. Peterson said he has narrowed his college choices to Iowa, St. Louis and Princeton, but is not near reaching a final decision. He has yet to meet new...
