It's Wednesday...in absence of Charlotte...Bball recruiting news


There is an article in today's Baltimore Sun regarding the Terps recruiting of 2013 PF Junior Etou. According to scout.com, Maryland has offered Etou. Other teams involved include Miami, West Virginia, Florida and Memphis among others.

The article says Maryland scouted Etou quite a few times last summer and was set to see him play in Florida before he went down with ankle injuries.

One of the more interesting parts of the article is the relationship between Etou's coach at Arlington Country Day (FL) Rex Morgan and Maryland assistant coach Dalonte Hill.

"With [Hill] there, Maryland will always have a shot at any of our kids,” Morgan said.

Etou also plays for D.C. Assault.

Morgan also was impressed with the Terps coaching staff. "They’re in a tough conference. They’ve got great tradition, great facilities, they’re in D.C. I think they’ve got everything to offer. I’m sure they’ll get it done. Not that Gary [Williams] didn’t get it done, but I think some people might think they need better talent,” he said.

Morgan's ACD teams are always among the top teams in the country.

Here is a clip of one of their games. Etou is #10 in green with the white sleeve on his left arm. He has dunks around the :35 and 1:35 mark. He also has a rebound and putback at around 2:18 in case you want to just click those times on the video.

Etou is in ESPN's Super 60 as a junior and has a 93 rating and four stars.

I hope we only use four scholarships this year. If we can get the Harrisons and Etou in 2013, I'll be very happy.

I can't wait for Charlotte to get back to doing these updates.
