Class of 2011 PG, Carmelo Betancourt will attend Midnight Madness at Georgetown University confirmed a source earlier today. Betancourt who transferred to powerhouse Monstrose Christian Academy this fall has been on Georgetowns' recruiting radar since last spring when Coach Thompson was on vacation in Puerto Rico with his family.
PR Playmakers Founder, Todd Washington told us earlier today that, " Carmelo has been invited to Midnight Madness at Georgetown. Clearly they are interested in Carmelo but he has to show Georgetown and all the other schools that are interested in him that he can play at this level. Getting invited to Midnight Madness is a clear signal of the schools' interest but he is far away from getting an offer from Georgetown. The season starts soon and I feel confident that Carmelo will show everyone what we already know! He's a big time guard trapped and a small package."
Midnight Madness is the official start of the college basketball season with team hold practice at midnight on October 15th. Typically there are all types of festivities including a dunk contest, three point shootout, scrimmage and live performances.
Wale, a DC area native and rising star on the rap scene will be performing tomorrow at Georgetowns' Midnight Madness.
