Apocalypse Now: Rakeem Christmas to Syracuse

I hate to be the bearer of bad news on this beautiful Friday before you are about to document your lunches, but it appears that prized recruit Rakeem Christmas will be heading to Syracuse.

NBE Basketball is reporting:

According to a source with knowledge of his recruitment, elite shot-blocking big man Rakeem Christmas will verbally commit to Syracuse in the near future. The decision is expected to be announced this weekend at the Nike Global Challenge in Portland where Christmas is participating for the USA.

No other way to slice it other than saying this is REALLY BAD NEWS for a Georgetown program still without a recruit in the 2011 class and getting KILLED by its Big East rivals on the recruiting trail.

Great day to be a Georgetown fan.
