It's great to see a young man step up for his values and be successful on the court. A Dallas paper reported that Matty turned down several top D-1 offers, including the Big East to sign in his home state. However, our new recruits for GW look great and I predict a post season Tour.

Yeah, they said that about him coming to GW too, and we see how that turned out.

Good luck to him in any case.

According to the George Washington Athletic Director and their head coach, they had big plans for Matt next season. Coach Hobbs seldom plays freshman shooting guards, but had high hopes for Matt next season. Matt's leaving was his decision and his alone. According to the news report, He could have stayed at GW, but he wanted to play closer to home. However, GW has brought in some great recruits, but we wish Matt the best of luck.
