Olasewere Will Visit Georgetown
Springbrook forward Jamal Olasewere plans to visit Georgetown either later this week or early next week and things could soon come into focus for him.
Several other schools -- Long Island, Fairleigh Dickson and Hartford, among others -- have phoned Springbrook Coach Tom Crowell, asking about Olasewere's status after his terrific play led the Blue Devils to the Maryland 4A championship this past weekend.
Olasewere, naturally, said he is "excited" to visit Georgetown, whose coach, John Thompson III, watched him play twice last week. It remains to be seen if Olasewere is ready for the Big East. He took exception to my comparison to being undersized like Lonny Baxter, insisting he is a legitimate 6-6. Regardless, there is no question that Olasewere has gotten where he because of a strong work ethic and toughness on the court -- whether those assets will be ebough in a big-time college environment is difficult to assess. Either way, things have definitely picked up for him.
