The radio show Terp Talk had Keith Cavanaugh from Terrapin Times on to talk about senior big man Desmond Hubert, who is deciding between Princeton, Maryland and Wake Forest. The pertinent portion of the conversation is 27:30 in. It is my understanding that the divide between Hubert and "a couple other people in his camp" is not as Cavanaugh describes.

Read a transcript of a live chat with Spider head coach Chris Mooney on the Richmond Times-Dispatch site.

Keith Cavanaugh seems pretty convinced that Desmond Hubert wants to "be a Terp". Who are those "other people in his camp" who want him to go to Princeton? Or, is this all Terp hype and possible sour grapes in case Hubert decides to come to Princeton? I have heard that he must improve his ACTs to gain admission to Princeton. Is this possibly what may be delaying his decision as he has indicated that he would like to make his college choice sooner rather than later?

What Mr. Cavanaugh is stating does not match what I am hearing.

It seems very unlikely that someone would be actively trying to raise their ACT score if they would then be going to a school that only "other people in his camp" want them to attend.

Are you playing close to the chest for a reason, Jon? What have you been hearing?

I know a cop out is not what you're looking for, but I'm not always able to share all the information that is provided to me from various sources - which I should stress for transparency are not the Princeton basketball staff.

I'm only comfortable saying that this radio report and what I have been told from multiple people in the past week+ do not jive.

My belief is that Hubert wasn't serious about the Tigers he would have signed with MD or WF during the fall signing period.

Then again, do not get your hopes up.

If you want to discuss more, contact me back channel.

It's cool. It's just unusual for you to be coy with info on the site, so I wasn't sure where that was coming from.

You say not to get our hopes up, but its hard not to when your secret inside sources make it seem like he's leaning Princeton's way!

Jon Solomon said,

We'll see what happens after/if he re-takes the ACTs.

It is certainly possible a guy who covers Princeton and someone who covers Maryland are being told completely different things (potentially by completely different people). That's one of many reasons to not get hopes high. I'd rather be pleasantly surprised.
