Sutton Chooses Villanova
"You're a half hour early," Largo Coach Lewis Howard joked as we spoke just now, prior to the 3 p.m. promise he made yesterday.
But I'm headed around the Beltway to watch baseball and Howard was in a good mood. All-Met center Maurice Sutton had finally made his college choice, accepting a scholarship offer to play for Villanova.
"It's a great opportunity for him," Howard said. "He felt like it was close to home and he liked what Coach [Jay] Wright was saying to him and the style of play they play at Villanova."
At Villanova, Sutton will join a roster that includes previous All-Mets Dante Cunningham (Potomac, Md.) and Scottie Reynolds (Herndon).
"They have quite a few local kids," Howard said. "That was a draw with him as well."
Sutton also considered Indiana and Seton Hall.
Howard said that high-scoring guard Klevin Pollard will play for Barton College, a Division II school in Wilson, N.C.
