DeMatha High-Flier Has Terps Attention
Oladipo is a 6-foot-4, 189-pound wing guard who despite not starting a single game for the Stags as a sophomore, has been collecting high-major scholarship offers since this summer. Maryland has verbally offered, as have Virginia Tech, Virginia, Clemson, UMass, VCU and George Mason. Meanwhile, Texas, Tennessee, Kansas State and Auburn have expressed varying levels of interest.
"I don't really know where I want to go to school," said Oladipo, a high-flier whose vertical leap is somewhere in the 35-inch range. "But [Maryland's] a good school. My dad went there. They're recruiting me really hard so it'll be on my list."
One might think that those family ties to Maryland might help the Terps' cause …
"He loves the school but he's not a huge Terps fan," Oladipo said of his father.
"I'm still trying to review all of my options and everything. I don't have any favorites. It doesn't really matter to me where the school is. I just want to go somewhere where I'm comfortable and where I'll play."
Oladipo is an academically oriented young man who would like to major in business management. He has not begun taking any unofficial visits and is unsure when he will, so his recruitment has not taken any real shape yet.
Oladipo is being recruited primarily by Terps assistant Chuck Driesell. He's been to College Park and played at Comcast Center on several occasions, in addition to attending a few football games.
"They told me that Maryland wants me for their program because I have the ability to change the program and they said that my work ethic is top notch and that's what they need," he said.
Again, Oladipo's recruitment doesn't seem to have left the starting gate yet. As always, though, we'll keep you posted as things begin to develop with the talented swingman.
