6'11 Maurice Sutton from Largo high school in Upper Marlboro, MD has been offered a scholarship by Duquesne. Sutton appears to be the real deal. As of January 13th Sutton was averaging 21.9 points and 10 rebounds a game at Largo. Sutton is exactly the type of player the Dukes need to add with their last two remaining scholarships for next year. The bad news is that he has also been offered scholarships by Marquette, Miami (Fla.), Clemson, Seton Hall, and Tulane. Kentucky is also said to be recruiting the big man. Sutton said he has not been offered a scholarship by the Wildcats but said "I think there is a possibility they may offer. I hope so."
It sounds like Sutton is holding out for Kentucky and if they don't offer him then he will chose from his other scholarships. Sutton is rated as a 3 star recruit by Scout.com, (Scout.com also lists Duquesne commit Eric Evans as a 3 star recruit.}
This is Scout.com's assessment of Sutton:
Good looking Class of 2008 prospect. Like how he handles himself at the rim where he's got good hands. Is a presence defensively and overall strength will determine eventual collegiate level for him but we expect him to be recruited at the high-major level.
