We reported last night on the premium message board that former Georgetown guard Jeremiah Rivers was spotted in Assembly Hall wearing an Indiana sweatshirt. Now it appears that was a pretty big clue what news was coming. This morning the Washington Times is reporting that a source close to the Georgetown program is telling them that Rivers plans to enroll at Indiana.
Rivers just finished his sophomore season at Georgetown and earlier this week announced plans to transfer from the program. He is the son of Boston Celtic head coach Doc Rivers. His father was a star college player at Marquette but Jeremiah never considered Marquette and Tom Crean coming out of high school for fear of playing in his famous father's shadow. Now he may be getting the chance to play for Tom Crean at another program.
The 6-foot-4 Rivers has been known as a defensive stopper in his two years at Georgetown. This past season he saw 18.4 minutes per game averaging 2.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per contest. Per NCAA guidelines he will be forced to sit out the coming 2008-09 year and then would have two seasons of eligibility.
Stay tuned for more on this breaking story.
