Busy Times for Clemson Recruit
It's a busy time for Pinewood Prep forward Milton Jennings. The 6-9, 215-pound forward flew from Charleston, S.C., to Miami last Saturday to participate in the McDonald's All-American Game on Wednesday. Thursday, Jennings flew from Miami to Washington, where a representative of the NHSI picked him up at Dulles International Airport and drove him to Rockville, where he met the rest of Pinewood's team at a hotel as they prepared for today's game against Oak Hill.
After this tournament -- win or lose, the teams have their stays paid for through Sunday -- Jennings will stay in town to play in Thurday's Capital Classic at American University.
"I'm pretty busy," Jennings said this morning. "I actually did [bring schoolwork on the trip]. You probably won't catch many players doing that."
Jennings added that he also read the first chapter of Alonzo Mourning's "Resilience: Faith, Focus, Triumph" -- given to the players in the McDonald's game -- and plans to write a book report on it for school.
On the court, the Clemson recruit was impressive early, with five points and two rebounds in the first quarter. Right now, Pinewood trails Oak Hill, 29-27, late in the first half.
