Hoops: Recruiting - Patrick Ewing Jr.

Someone at the Hive found this blurb on Ewing Jr. from March 2002 prior to his decision to attend Indiana. Interesting story for sure. If you ask me, there are enough red-flags in this situation to raise questions. But of course none of us know the real story.

I'd also like to point something out. This entire rumor about Georgia Tech's involvement started after he made it official that he was transferring from Indiana. But the ONLY online source I could find mentioning the rumor were college message boards, none of which were based on fact. Just pure speculation.

Now, was it just a discussion board comment that started all this. Seems very possible based on my fact-checking. Having said that, as always with rumors, until they are denied, a kernal of truth is always assumed. That's a lesson that Ian O'Connor probably has not learned yet.
