Intro: Moses Abraham

Can a kid named Moses be the player big programs covet this spring? We'll see as Moses Abraham is a young man currently being evaluated at the highest level.

Everybody's looking anywhere they can to find big fellas to sign this spring. One of the new stops on the recruiting trail is Camp Springs (Md.) Progressive Christian Academy. Moses Abraham is a 6-foot-9 center who is going to sign in the spring.

"He's got an unbelievable wingspan," Joe Boncore, Abraham's guardian told "He can jump out of the gym and he's got range on his shot."

A high-major coach who recently saw Abraham thought he could be a prospect in time. "He's intriguing. He'll definitely garner some high-major interest. He's got a better feel than I anticipated."

Boncroe said the landscape of Abraham's recruitment is laced with big schools. Maryland, LSU, Georgetown, Rutgers, VCU and Miami have offered. "Kentucky's Rod Strickland has been here and they wanted him to come to the Louisville game." UK and Texas are scheduled to be in on the 20th and Florida is going to drop by soon.

Connecticut is also heavily interested in evaluating him and the Huskies are going to see him again soon.

"Georgetown was here the second day he was off the plane," Boncore said of his Nigerian.

Abraham's strory is a compelling one. His mother died at birth. "He was studying to be a priest before he decided to give that up for basketball."

The long and short of the story is that plenty of recruiters are going to make their way to Progressive to evaluate and maybe offer the big Nigerian. He's a new name on the scene and he's got to be checked out.
