Recruiting Insider: April 15, 2007 - April 21, 2007

Joseph Heading to Syracuse

I missed posting this earlier in the week. Carroll guard Kris Joseph, who made quite a splash in his first year locally after moving from Montreal, committed to play for Syracuse. He also considered Georgetown and at one time Maryland also was thought to be very interested in Joseph....

Logan-El Going I-AA?

Nothing is official yet, but when the wheels stop turning expect Antonio Logan-El to wind up at Towson, according to a well-placed source with inside information. An All-Met offensive lineman in 2005, Logan-El is waiting for Penn State to release him from his scholarship. That is considered a formality and...

The Next Jordan?

The Washingtonian last month wondered whether Michael Jordan's son was going to play for Georgetown. Today, though, the Chicago Tribune - which perhaps has a better handle on the subject? - reports that Illinois might be Jeffrey Jordan's destination....

Tribe Loses Recruit

William & Mary assistant coach Antwon Jackson is as visible as anyone (save maybe Mason's Chris Caputo) when it comes to scouring the D.C. area for players. And now the Tribe is looking for one more recruit after losing a once-committed 6-5 forward to Mississippi State. Scroll to the fourth...

Early Signees Beware

Got a phone call the other day from former Potomac (Md.) High and Bowie State basketball coach Taft Hickman, now the coach at Kempsville High in Virginia Beach. Hickman was calling to voice his displeasure with Wichita State University, which refused to release one of Hickman's players from a letter-of-intent...

More on Text Messaging

Leave it to the Ivy League to come up with the NCAA's best legislation in quite some time. Quite frankly, after scanning today's papers for articles, I'm surprised more is not being made of the possibility that the NCAA will ban the text messaging of recruits....

No More Text Messaging????

This could me a huge change in recruiting. An NCAA committee has approved the change and it could be finalized next week by the NCAA Management Council. Some coaches no doubt will be pleased by the measure and some -- who used the loophole to their advantage -- will be...

Peterson to Iowa?

The story that seemingly never ends looks like to wrap up, possibly as soon as tonight and all indications are that DeMatha point guard Jeff Peterson will sign with Iowa. He had been waiting to meet the Hawkeyes' new coach, Todd Lickliter, before making a final decision. That happened yesterday,...

Well, it appears there is at least one more player to add to my list of the area's top football prospects from the class of 2008. Brooke Point LB Donovan Miles holds scholarship offers from Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia and plans to make a decision in the...

Peterson Decision This Week?

Been down this road before. The Des Moines Register reports that DeMatha guard Jeff Peterson is close to making a decision between Iowa, Princeton and St. Louis. Many ways to read this one. Does this mean Princeton, believed to be talking to Georgetown assistant Sidney Johnson, is close to making...

With John Beilein moving on to Michigan, Huggins brings a completely different style to Morgantown. However, after meeting with Huggins, Flowers said he intends to...

G'town Adds a Good One

I had alluded to this possibility over the winter and now it appears to have happened. With Jeff Green and Roy Hibbert NBA-bound, Georgetown has scholarship openings and the Hoyas will use one on St. John's (Md.) forward Nikita Mescheriakov, according to a person close to the player. Mescheriakov, a...
