The level of interest Morgan State had in Donte Pretlow was never in doubt. For more than a year, members of the Bears coaching staff have seemingly been tracking the Dunbar point guard's every move. “They have been involved with him for awhile,” said Poets coach Cyrus Jones . “I would say they came around last year and really took an interest after that. They followed him last summer when he played AAU with Nike Baltimore Elite. It just continued during his senior year.” Pretlow rewarded Morgan's loyalty and persistence last week with his commitment.

Daxter Miles wasn't planning on making his college commitment Friday night. But the Dunbar senior had a sudden change of heart during his high school graduation three days ago. “I decided [to end my recruitment] because it was a big event in my life, with me and my family, so why not keep it going and commit on my graduation?” said Miles, who pledged to West Virginia. “I wasn't planning to at first. Everything hit me though, and I thought about it real heavy.” Miles, who also considered offers from Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Villanova and Xavier, said the Mountaineers have been recruiting him since the beginning of his senior year, shortly after he transferred to Dunbar from IMG Academy in Florida.
