Tweets of the day 4.24.13

It's the live period for college basketball coaches right now. And that means two things: coaches get to watch prospects play on the AAU circuit and that leads to more scholarship offers.

Case in point is Maryland's latest offer to DC Assault big man Chinanu Onuaku, the younger brother of former Syracuse standout Arinze Onuaku.

The younger Onuaku averaged averaged 8.2 points and 10.8 rebounds per game for Riverdale Baptist this year en route to being named an honorable mention All-Met.
But while the Terps are actively recruiting high schoolers right now, they aren't limiting their scope to just that. With the departures of Alex Len and Pe'Shon Howard, Maryland has four open scholarships. (Three if you count rising senior and current commit Romelo Trimble.)

And Mark Turgeon and his staff are also looking to potentially add another fifth-year graduate transfer (as was the case with Albany grad and three-point specialist Logan Aronhalt this past season)... 
Vertrail Vaughns wasn't exactly a star player at George Mason. But he averaged 8.8 points on 42% shooting as a junior before his numbers dipped under first-year head coach Paul Hewitt.

The more interesting name popping up right now is Rutgers guard Eli Carter, who asked for a release after the firing of head coach Mike Rice. Due to the coaching change, he'd likely be able to play immediately.

Carter averaged 14.9 points per game on 38% shooting for the Scarlet Knights this year. And had Rutgers not been playing from behind so often, his efficiency would have likely improved.
