i95ballerz.com is reporting that the Hoyas are in the lead for the services of 2009 Michigan big man Deshonte Riley. http://www.i95ballerz.com/story%20-%20deshonte%20riley.html
Riley, who is 6'10, 220 lbs, told them in a recent interview that the Hoyas lead Michigan State, Michigan, Kansas, Memphis and Ohio State. He stated: "I grew up a big Hoya fan and I plan to visit them for their Midnight Madness in October." Midnight Madness visits are always a VERY good sign and often presage commitments.
Riley is ranked #13 in his class by Rivals. Both Rivals and Scout list him as a 5 star recruit. He would certainly be a nice way to kick off the class of 2009, which everyone keeps saying is loaded with talent. For more information about Mr. Riley, please visit http://www.dashonteriley.org/.
