“Undercover” Student-Athletes are Recruited to Little Fanfare
Taylor Brown ‘11
The Golf team never gets any recognition. Division-1 recruit, Marvin Cabotaje ‘11, golf player, has been recruited by George Washington University and Towson University.
Marvin was awarded MVP for Bishop McNamara’s golf team for the last three years. He played number one for the team since sophomore year. Marvin earned First Team Washington Post his junior year.
Fun fact: He won against Dematha in an individual match his sophomore year which earned McNamara it’s first point in twelve years. Marvin has been captain for the golf team for the last two years.
George Washington has a spot for Marvin on the golf team, but Towson seemed to act a little bit funny with their offer. The coach wasn’t too confident in giving him a spot on their team. But between George Washington and Towson University, Marvin has decided to attend Towson. He has a personal reason for wanting to walk on for Towson’s golf team rather than accepting a spot on GW’s golf team.
Marvin said, “I’m looking forward to play at Towson. I know that golf in college will help me develop my skill and hopefully get on tour and compete against Tiger and the other great players out there.”
Amanda Barber ’11, Swimmer of the Year, is getting recruited by Towson University. Towson’s swimming program offered her a scholarship. Barber said, “I like the school, swimming program, and coaches. I’m going commit to Towson University before the 27th of April.
Ernest Baldwin ’11, baseball player, was offered a scholarship to play baseball at Anne Arundel Community College.
Point guard Ibn Muhammad ’11 is still undecided. University of Central Florida, Marshall and Seton Hall has been recruiting Ibn. He said UCF is his number one school right now and he will make his decision soon.
