Vasquez Should Decide This Fall

He's coming down the homestretch. Argentinean born standout guard Greivis Vasquez is narrowing his focus and could make a decision shortly this fall.

Manu Ginobili and Greivis Vasquez are countrymen. They aren't boys and don't really know each other but it's clear that Vasquez has taken a page from the Ginobili book on how to play.

"He likes the way Ginobili plays and a lot of people compare him to Manu," Montrose Christian coach Stu Vetter said of his 6-foot-5 guard. "Greivis plays with such a flair. He's a unique player because at 6-foot-5 he can pass it and he's got a terrific handle. I think he's one of the best guards in the country without question. He's really a true point guard at the college level. He has a tremendous ability to see the floor and he finds the open man."

If that sounds like the high school version of Manu, well then you're thinking along the right lines.

Vasquez moonlighted a little with Boo Williams this past summer but it was really with Montrose Christian last year where he opened enough eyes to garner the recruiting interest that he presently has.

Schools like Maryland, Virginia Tech, Gonzaga, Boston College and a host of others have been through. According to Vetter, the end could be in sight for his standout guard.

"He's considering doing something this fall and I think that's a good possibility. I think he would like to make a reasonably early decision so that he can continue to enjoy his senior year."

An early decision means potential strong news for the Terps or Hokies. "He's visited Maryland and Virginia Tech officially. He's in the decision making process. He's got some other schools that have shown a lot of interest but I think it's pretty much between Virginia Tech and Maryland at this point.

"His parents are waiting on some information that we've seen to them about some different schools."

The Hokies were his most recent visit and he tripped to Blacksburg last weekend. "He went down to Virginia Tech officially this past weekend," assistant coach David Adkins said. "Coach Greenberg does a great job of endearing himself with the kids."

Maryland has been pushing hard and Gary Williams has done a lot of work with Vasquez as well.
