Twyman To Be A Hoosier?

Not quite, but if Sherwood All-Met guard Deontay Twyman can make the NCAA's initial academic eligibility standards, he will play in the Hoosier state.

While no one was ready to confirm anything last night, a source with knowledge of the situation said that Twyman will sign a national letter-of-intent to play basketball for Ball State. Also an All-Met quarterback, Twyman would not play football for the Cardinals.

Twyman would be considered a terrific recruit for Ball State, which has plenty of local ties, from Coach Ronny Thompson (a former Georgetown assistant) to assistant Bill Howze (formerly the head coach at Carroll High). Twyman received plenty of interest in the past month; George Mason was among the schools very interested in him. Many schools were particularly interested in Twyman because of the leadership and toughness he showed on the football field, believing that if he played basketball year-round, he would improve in that sport and be a strong leader on the court -- he guided Sherwood to the Maryland 4A basketball title and football championship game this school year.
