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.
