Maurice Sutton is still waiting for the answer.
And he’s prepared to wait for as long as it takes.
“I move on His terms, to be honest with you,” he told me moments ago. “God hasn’t opened up and led me yet.”
Sutton, a 6-10 center from Maryland, has been praying about the choice he must make. He has narrowed where he’ll play basketball next season to Indiana, Seton Hall and Villanova.
But as the deadline he set — May 21, the end of the spring signing period — approaches, he has no answer. And he will not rush (nor does he have to since he could receive a scholarship even after that date.)
“I’m just going to wait on the answer,” he said. “I’ve put my faith in Him in all things with my life, and that’s what I’m going to continue to do.”
Sutton, who visited Villanova last week and was in Bloomington for the May Classic, has spoken with his parents — his mother is a minister — and coaches about which school fits him best. But ultimately, he said, prayer will lead him to his decision.
