The first few days of the late signing period passed quietly for the GW men’s basketball team, but the next two weeks promise the opposite.
Head coach Tom Penders and associate head coach Rob Wright, who cannot comment on unsigned recruits, are currently in New York making home visits.
GW’s two targeted recruits, guard Darnell Miller and forward Greg Jenkins, both attend high school in New York.
Contrary to some published reports, Miller (St. Raymond’s, Bronx) did not visit Foggy Bottom this weekend. He is scheduled to do so May 4-5, sources said. Miller, who has given the Colonials a firm verbal commitment, is expected to sign at that time.
Jenkins (Mount Vernon) is also expected to make a visit to GW May 4-5, according to sources.
In other news on the recruiting front, forward Shawn Davis of Booker T. Washington (Memphis, Tenn.), who signed a National Letter of Intent with GW in November of 1999, is awaiting a qualifying score on the ACT. Coach Wright confirmed Sunday that Davis is seeking to raise his score one point. If he fails to do so, he may spend next fall at a prep school or a junior college. Coach Wright, who heads up GW’s recruiting, remains upbeat.
I think he’ll get it, he said.
