Rumor: Mo Rice leaving, fowards Dinc and Katuka in

An anonymous poster at GWhoops.com says that Maureece Rice will stay in the draft, thus leaving GW, and that Cem Dinc and Joseph Katuka will be coming to GW. If true, this is not good news at all, since Mo Rice is a great player and scorer. The poster says he is leaving for "family reasons." However, JR Pinnock said on WRGW the other day that he's helping Rice prepare, that he wished he had stayed his senior year, and that he expects Rice to remain at GW. The Hatchet reports Karl Hobbs as saying he has two commits this year.

As for Dinc, I wrote about him before, and Katuka is a similarly big forward from Florida - 6'11, 235.

UPDATE: I haven't been able to get a confirmation on any of the post from elsewhere. Frequent GWhoops.com poster Mister Days says this: "I know for a fact Rice hasn't signed with an agent and is not going to. As for the rest of the original post, Dinc hasn't even visted the school yet and Katuka was just here a few days ago."

UPDATE 2: The original poster says the information is from Philly, not GW.
