SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Moses Abraham, a 6-9, 237-pound power forward from Temple Hills (Md.) Progressive Christian, is headed to the Big East.
“He gave a verbal to Georgetown,” said Joe Boncore, Abraham’s mentor.
A native of Nigeria, Abraham just returned Thursday from a trip to Indiana and chose between the Hoosiers and the Hoyas.
“He just got back from Indiana,” Boncore said. “He loved everything about the school. His uncle wants him to go to Georgetown so he’s gonna go to Georgetown.”
Boncore said Abraham could help the Hoyas in a big way next year, especially if Greg Monroe were to return and he could learn from him. Numerous draft projections have Monroe going as a lottery pick.
“I just think he will help Georgetown get back to intimidation, defense and blocked shots,” Boncore said.
“He’ll be a big part of that. He should flourish in that system if Greg Monroe comes back. They have a real shot to win it all. He’ll be a sparkplug off the bench and he’ll learn from Greg.”
