Coolidge guard joins the A&T rush

Coolidge senior point guard Jeremy Underwood is joining the Washington contingent heading down to North Carolina A&T. Underwood committed to the Aggies after taking his official visit over the weekend, according to Coolidge Coach Vaughn Jones.

Underwood averaged 10.6 points per game last season, after transferring from Paul VI, and made a team-high 42 three-pointers for the 18-8 Colts. Jones said Underwood carries a 3.75 grade-point average, has qualified academically, and also held offers from Vermont, Cornell and Lafayette.

"They love that Jeremy can shoot and handle the ball," Jones said. "It's really going to work out for him there."

Underwood will be accompanied in the Aggies' 2010 recruiting class by DeMatha shooting guard Justin Black. Last year, they brought in two other D.C. products - McNamara forward Lawrence Smith and St. Mary's Ryken guard R.J. Buck. Sophomore guard Marc Hill is a McNamara product, as well.

Jones said he expects to see North Carolina A&T more active in the Washington area. First-year Aggies assistant and alumnus Walter Booth played for The Heights before graduating in 2003. Jones said he was instrumental in Underwood's recruitment.
