Maryland big man Maurice Sutton gets Indiana offer

According to John Decker over at Hoosier Nation, Indiana has extended a scholarship offer to 2008 Upper Marlboro (MD) big man Maurice Sutton. Sutton played in the Derby Festival Classic this past weekend at Freedom Hall in Louisville and scored 17 points.

Ironically, I was just discussing Sutton on Monday night with a scout that has followed him relatively closely and I got the impression that he’s a major work in progress. He’s 6-10, but said to be very raw and unlikely to be an immediate contributor. With the lack of interior depth currently on board for next season, Tom Crean and staff are likely looking at any and all options to fill voids on the roster.

Sutton is said to be considering Kentucky, Boston College, Villanova, Syracuse and Seton Hall. Only Boston College has extended an offer to this point.
