A-10 School Gets Some Love

Jason Love is a guy that didn't really make a splash on the national scene, but he committed to the A-10 after recently being offered by an ACC school.

Jason Love, a 6-foot-8, 260-pound senior forward at Abington Friends (Pa.), committed to Xavier on an official visit this weekend.

"What hit me was when I saw the guys and they were about to work out," Love said. "I saw how big and developed they were … it just felt right with them."

``Xavier offered him everything he's experiencing in high school," Love's brother, Abington Friends assistant coach Leon Shamsid-Deen said. "Academically, socially and with basketball."

Love, who averaged 15 points a game in high school, was a guy who flew somewhat under the radar while playing alongside Antonio "Scoop" Jardine for the Hunting Park Warriors. He has good size, can knock down shot from mid-range and can also run the floor well for a guy his size. Love also has soft hands and does a good job controlling the glass.

``I'm just elated," said Love's father, Wendell. "He loved the closeness of the campus. It's a very warm, quiet, peaceful place."

Love, who is already qualified academically, had previously visited Penn State and was slated to take trips to Providence, LaSalle and Virginia in the coming weeks.

According to sources, the Cavaliers recently offered the big man.
