Devonta Pollard Chooses Alabama over Georgetown, Texas, Missouri and LSU

Devonta Pollard, the 5-star Class of 2012 forward from Mississippi, has decided to remain close to home and attend the University of Alabama.

Despite Pollard's announcement theatrics, his decision today to remain in the South shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Though Pollard enjoyed his official visit to Georgetown, after former Hoyas assistant coach and lead Pollard recruiter Robert Kirby bolted to LSU not many close to Georgetown's program had high hopes for his commitment. Though the decision does make you wonder a little bit whether Pollard was indeed leaning towards heading to the Hilltop before Kirby's departure, Georgetown's depth at the forward position makes this loss easier to swallow.

After inking 6'11" center Bradley Hayes to a class that already contained 6'10" Brandon Bolden and 6'3" combo guard D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera, Georgetown had one remaining scholarship in the Class of 2012. With no scholarships currently available in the Class of 2013 after the signing of highly touted forward Stephen Domingo, this scholarship will most likely go unused.

Onward and upward.
