One Big Ten school made a push at the end, but it wasn't enough to pry four-star post man Moses Abraham out of his new Big East stomping grounds.
Georgetown withstood a serious surge by Indiana to land Abraham.
"Moses got home from his visit to Indiana and talked to his uncle," said Joe Boncore, who is Abraham's guardian. "He just thought Georgetown was the better school for him. It was a hard decision because he thought Indiana was a great school, too, and that he could do well there.
"But Georgetown is a smaller school and closer to where his new friends are. Even though he might not start there, he thought Georgetown would give him the best chance to develop."
Fresh to the United States from Nigeria, Abraham has been impressed with the play of Georgetown's Greg Monroe.
"Even if Greg doesn't doesn't come back, Moses knows he can work with him, and he's the type of player who can make him better," said Boncore.
Playing at Temple Hills (Md.) Progressive Christian, Abraham made an immediate impression with coaches with his shot blocking ability and work on the glass.
