High Schooler Skipping Senior Year to Turn Pro

Don't look now, but is a new trend starting? A teenager from San Diego, who just happens to be 6-11, will skip his senior year of high school to pursue a professional basketball career. Wow. Jeremy Tyler had committed to play for Louisville, but it appears that won't happen now...

Former All-Met Signs With U-Mass.

Heard about this one but had too much to post yesterday. Former Montrose Christian All-Met Terrell Vinson signed with Massachusetts. He played this season at St. Frances of Baltimore and had signed with Loyola Marymount before a midseason coaching change....

Big Get for Mason

Sorry that it took a while to get this post up, George Mason fans, but the Patriots appear to have gotten quite a recruit in guard Sherrod Wright, a senior from Mount Vernon, N.Y., who gives Mason a six-player recruiting class. Credit Mason's Final Four run and the success of...

Coach Says Benimon Just Waiting on Paperwork

Just got off the line with Fauquier Coach Wayne Brizzi, who says that Jerrelle Benimon is simply waiting for Georgetown's letter-of-intent to arrive. "We haven't signed any papers, it's not official, but they're sending papers out today or tomorrow and he's going to sign them and send them back in...

Hoyas Adding a Local Forward

And it's not who you might think. Multiple sources are telling me that Fauquier fourth-team All-Met Jerrelle Benimon will sign with the Hoyas. Wow. Former colleague Matt Stanmyre, a noted Benimon fan, wrote in in late January about how the 6-8 Benimon being largely ignored by college recruiters despite putting...

Georgetown Adds Point Guard

Around local basketball circles, Georgetown's roster next season is a much-discussed topic. With only seven returning scholarship players and one recruit signed to a letter-of-intent, the Hoyas have plenty of openings. It had appeared that All-Met forward Jamal Olasewere might end up on the Hill, but now I think that...

From Oxon Hill to the NFL Draft

If anyone needs a reminder that college recruiting is an inexact science, consider Richmond defensive end Lawrence Sidbury. He was much-hyped before his senior year at Oxon Hill but wound up at I-AA Richmond and now has shot up draft boards leading up to this weekend's NFL draft....

Spent Saturday night at the Reebok All-American Game at American U., where the theme of the night was former local stars returning to play at home. Kansas recruit Thomas Robinson, who played at Eastern and Riverdale Baptist before heading to a New England prep school for his senior year, was...
