College Basketball Signing Day: Patrick Holloway Signs Letter Of Intent With George Mason

George Mason basketball has officially secured its first Letter of Intent from a member of the Class of 2012. The Patriots announced that guard Patrick Holloway has committed to playing for the program on college basketball's national early-signing day. Holloway is a 6'1'' guard from Paul VI in Fairfax, and he is the first member of Paul Hewitt's second recruiting class.

"We are very fortunate to be adding a terrific young man like Patrick to our program," said Hewitt. "Obviously people in the area know him well as he attends Paul VI, and he is one of the best 3-point shooters in the D.C. metro area."

Holloway's high-school coach Glenn Farello compared him to Lamar Butler, the all-CAA guard who graduated last season. Holloway is about to begin his senior season at Paul VI. Last season, he averaged 16.2 points per game and was a fourth-team All-Met selection by the Washington Post.

Maryland Basketball Recruiting: Shaquille Cleare, Jake Layman, Seth Allen All Sign Letters Of Intent

Wednesday was a big day for Maryland basketball recruiting, as the Terps have received official letters of intent from all three of its committed prospects from the Class of 2012, according to Inside MD Sports. Those three players are center Shaquille Cleare, small forward Jake Layman and shooting guard Seth Allen.

Cleare is the headliner of the recruiting class thus far. A four-star center from Houston, Cleare is ranked as the ninth-best center in the Class of 2012 and 44th overall by Rivals. He, along with Ukranian import Alex Len, is expected to fill the void inside that was vacated by the departure of Jordan Williams to the 2011 NBA Draft.

Lynam and Allen are both three-star recruits. Allen is a 6'2'' guard from Fredericksburg, Virginia, while Layman is a 6'8'' forward from Massachusetts. They are the three marquee names for Mark Turgeon's 2012 recruiting class, which is expected to be one of the stronger ones in the nation.
