Earl Timberlake was asleep Friday at midnight when his phone started to go off. There was one buzz after another, as college coaches were persistent in trying to contact him directly, but Timberlake slept through each one. When the rising junior guard from DeMatha finally woke up at 7:30 a.m. and leaned over to check his phone, he saw how many messages he missed.
On his screen were texts and voice mails from coaches from Miami, TCU, Howard, Bryant, Florida, Notre Dame, DePaul, Pittsburgh, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Seton Hall, West Virginia, Maryland, Oklahoma State and Providence. All are interested in the talented player out of the Washington, D.C. area and wanted to make sure their pitches were heard during the first 24 hours college coaches were allowed to have unlimited contact with rising high school juniors.
