Hoyas net a big man

Colleague Steve Yanda with the news over on Terps Insider that Progressive Christian forward Moses Abraham has committed to Georgetown. It's an interesting pick, given that Abraham had said he was down to the Hoyas and Maryland then suddenly opened his options and also looked at Indiana, UCLA and Tennessee -- before picking Georgetown after his advisor met with Hoyas Coach John Thompson III and former coach John Thompson II.

I do not question Yanda's sources on the Abraham recruitment story he wrote regarding MD a couple weeks ago, because I am sure he was told what he wrote, but my sources very close to this situation, (i.e. Markel Starks, Markel's brother who is a coach at Progressive, and Jason Clark) never wavered in their belief that Abraham was Gtown bound this entire time. Clark and Starks both have told me directly that he assured JT3 he was not interested in any school besides Gtown.

Give credit to Coach Creen for making a valiant effort in keeping Indiana as a distant second choice once Tenn. fell out of the running.

Abraham has said himself many times in the last month, to my sources, that he was 100% heading to Gtown. Crazy how recruiting and the internet can create such strange reports that differ so greatly. What I have come to learn is no source is a sure thing when it comes to recruiting but if you talk to other HS players that know an individual well and speak to him often, you get closer to the truth then any other source.
