Moses Abraham’s recruitment will continue at least until Tuesday. A source close to the situation confirmed that the 6-foot-9 forward will sleep on his choice between Georgetown and Indiana. This does allow for a change in dynamic, as Tuesday begins a contact period which would allow for Indiana’s coaching staff to meet with Abraham in person. Whether that is actually planned, however, is unknown.
The Moses Abraham camp is still talking, a source said at 9 p.m., and there’s still a chance there could be a decision tonight.
And this story has become one of the strangest recruiting phenomena of all time.
So Scout.com’s John Decker is reporting that Moses Abraham probably won’t make a decision tonight. I don’t know how Decker managed to swing an interview with Abraham, but kudos to him.
My source in the Abraham camp, though, says they are still trying to get the process over with. If you’re asking me for a guess, I’m betting it won’t happen tonight, but I take all of this to mean that nothing is decided.
No news yet at 7:20 p.m. As I said before, this was not a hard and fast deadline. Not like he’s having a press conference. It could be 9 p.m., it could be tomorrow. We’ll see. Appreciate those who keep checking in.
Indiana’s recruitment of the Replogle family has worked well so far, so the Hoosiers apparently had no qualms with going back to that well again.
The IU football team’s first verbal commitment for the 2011 class comes from Centreville (Ohio) High School inside linebacker Mike Replogle, younger brother of IU rising senior linebacker Tyler Replogle and rising sophomore defensive tackle Adam Replogle. Centreville coach Ron Ullery, who also coached Replogle’s two older brothers, said Monday that the third Replogle made his commitment Friday.
It was an easy decision for both IU and Replogle to make. The Hoosiers knew his family well and Replogle obviously knew the school.
“They know what they’re getting,” Ullery said of Indiana. “I think most of the time, because of the recruiting rules, these college guys have some question in their minds about what type of kid they’re recruiting. In this case, they know exactly what they’re getting, because he’s just like the other two.”
Well, maybe not exactly the same. Mike obviously doesn’t have nearly the bulk as the 6-foot-3, 290-pound Adam, and Ullery says he might be a hair slower than Tyler. Mike is a little bit taller, though, at 6-3, 210.
But the most important trait they share, Ullery said, is that they are all coachable and students of the game.
“They’re never going to back off,” Ullery said. “If the coaches ask Mike to run through a brick wall, he’ll run through a brick wall, same as the other two.”
As a junior, the third Replogle led Centreville with 75 tackles, including five for loss. He also had two fumble recoveries and an interception. He helped Centreville to an 8-3 record and a playoff berth.
A source close to the situation says Moses Abraham could now be making his decision around 7 p.m. today. Not exactly sure why, but that’s the latest time we’re hearing.
We’ll stay after it.
UPDATE, 3:34 p.m.
It should be noted this 7 p.m. thing is by no means a hard deadline or a promise. Source says he thinks it could be around 7 p.m., hopes its by 9 p.m. but can’t say that it will definitely be today.
