Blame Indiana for Moses Abraham's delayed college decision.
According to a source, the reason Abraham was unable to make his college decision Sunday night was because of the job that the Indiana coaching staff has done in its pursuit of the 6'9", 235-pound big man from Progressive Christian Academy in Temple Hills, Md.
One of the Hoosiers' most coveted spring recruiting targets, Abraham has attracted attention from a host of big-name programs since arriving in the United States from Nigeria in November. He recently whittled that list down to two – Indiana and Georgetown – and was expected to make his decision last night.
The conventional wisdom was that his choice would be Georgetown for a couple of reasons. Georgetown has been expressing interest in Abraham virtually since he first arrived in the U.S. nearly four months ago, and he also made an official visit to the Hoyas' program March 7. Abraham had intended to make an official visit to Indiana as well earlier this month, but a case of the flu kept him from making it to Bloomington.
Despite that scratched visit, Abraham clearly hasn't scratched Indiana from his list.
Hoosier Nation will have more on Abraham's recruitment and his decision as this story develops.
