Former SMU big man Blaise Mbargorba is expected to make his college choice soon and will likely land at Seton Hall or Boston University, a source who recently spoke with Mbargorba told SNY.tv Tuesday night.
“I think he wants to get it over with and figure out where he wants to go,” the source said. “I think it will be Seton Hall or Boston U.”
The 6-foot-11 center is also considering Monmouth, but the source said, “I didn’t get the feeling that it’s Monmouth.”
Mbargorba was supposed to return to SMU this past Sunday for summer school but because he broke his nose about 10 days ago and got it set on Saturday, he was not permitted to travel.
The source said Mbargorba will meet with a doctor on Wednesday morning and if he is cleared to travel, he could return to SMU later Wednesday for classes.
Because Mbargorba won’t suit up at his next college until the 2014-15 season (unless he gets a waiver), the source said it is not unusual for him to return to SMU for classes this summer before departing.
As for his choice, the source said, “He seems like he’s still up in the air.”
