This is a quick recruiting update:
ESPN has some updates on class of 2011 recruits.
1. Desmond Hubert
ESPNU Super 60 center Desmond Hubert met with the Maryland coaching staff on Saturday and walked out of Gary Williams' office with a scholarship offer, according to ESPN.com's Maryland affiliate www.InsideMDSports.com.
"It was real cool because like to me, coach Williams is up there with [North Carolina's] Roy Williams and [Duke's] Coach K in the ACC," Hubert said. "He's a really good coach, he's been there for a long time. He knows what he's doing."
Hubert has also unofficially visited Villanova and Penn State, both of whom have offered him. He's also being recruited by St. Joseph's, Rutgers, Virginia and Xavier, according to his AAU coach, Johnny Salmon.
2. Mikael Hopkins
ESPNU Super 60 power forward Mikael Hopkins is set to unofficially visit Notre Dame on Oct. 16, according to ESPN.com's ND affiliate site www.irishsportsdaily.com.
"(Irish) Coach (Mike) Brey said it would be a good place for me to come because I'll have family there," Hopkins said. Brey and assistant coach Rod Balanis are both graduates of DeMatha Catholic H.S. "And he said I'll be able to develop into a better basketball player and a better person."
Hopkins has visited Maryland, Georgetown and Virginia Tech and holds offers from all three. He also has offers from Syracuse, Florida, Clemson, Virginia, West Virginia, Florida State, Pittsburgh and Villanova, but is in no rush to make a decision, he told the site.
Seems like G-Dubs is the man...like NPH.
