Aboya De-Commits from Hoyas

The college coaches are allowed to hit the road beginning today to meet with juniors at their schools. Tilton's Alfred Aboya will have a couple visitors this week after re-opening his recruitment.

Alfred Aboya has always wanted to go to Georgetown, but that dream will be put on hold for awhile.

The powerful and vastly improving Tilton School (N.H.) junior has decided to re-open his recruitment because of the coaching situation with the Hoyas after committing to the program a couple months ago.

``Due to the recent developments with Craig Esherick being fired, he wanted to re-open the process and see what else is out there," Tilton coach Scott Willard said. "Don't rule Georgetown out. He likes the campus, but now he has a better idea of how the process works."

Willard said that Virginia has already put forth an offer from watching the 6-8, 230-pound power forward on tape. Pete Gillen is scheduled to make the trip to Tilton on Thursday, one day after George Washington head coach Karl Hobbs makes the trip.

Willard also said that Aboya, who will look for a school with a strong international relations and political science program, is also considering Kansas, UConn and North Carolina. The Jayhawks are planning to take a trip to watch him – while Huskies assistant coach Tom Moore has already been up to see Aboya.

Aboya won't be a fixture on the scene in April. He is scheduled to have minor knee surgery on April 16 that will keep him sidelined through May.

``He has mad incredible strides," added Willard. "He has a great up-and-under move, knows when to kick it out or take it strong and, where in the beginning of the season it was all his athleticism, now he gets at least half his points on individual moves."
