G'town Recruit Gets Glowing Review; Braswell Update
Just got off the phone with D.C. Triple Threat guru Keith Stevens, who was rolling out of his hotel bed at 8 a.m. Vegas time but denied staying out too late last night. Triple Threat won its opening game in the Reebok Summer Championships, 85-77 in overtime over Belmore Shore, which featured Georgetown recruit Hollis Thompson.
"He's going to be real good for Georgetown," Stevens said. "He can really score from all over. He's athletic, can shoot the three, get to the rim and finish."
Indiana recruit Maurice Creek led Triple Threat with 29, with Virginia Tech recruit Erick Greene adding 15 with no turnovers. Greene, an All-Met this past season at Millbrook, will play his senior year at Paul VI Catholic, Stevens confirmed. Chris Braswell, no longer committed to Georgetown, had 11 points and 12 rebounds and his recruiting is "a headache," Stevens said. Braswell will head back to Hargrave Military Academy this fall for a fifth year of high school.
"All these damn schools," Stevens said. Right now, it's Pittsburgh, U-Conn., West Virginia, Xavier, Indiana, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Maryland, Charlotte, Villanova, Memphis. He has over 23 scholarship offers. We're not going to narrow it down until after this summer is over. He's never had a chance to talk to anybody."
Another Triple Threater playing well has been Severna Park swingman Brendan Bald, the younger brother of third-team All-Met Brad Bald. Bald is up to 11 scholarship offers, Stevens said.
