Greg Monroe In The House

By Bailey Heaps - October 12, 2007

WASHINGTON -- I just spoke with the nation's top recruit from the class of 2008, Greg Monroe, who seems to be enjoying his official visit to Georgetown.

"It's been really nice," Monroe said. "I've had a good time. The campus is really nice, people are really friendly. It's been a good experience."

Monroe said he has had both breakfast and dinner with Coach Thompson since arriving on the Hilltop.
"He is really intelligent," Monroe said of Thompson. "He runs a very good program. I think he picked up exactly where his father left off."

Monroe declined to say if there was a leader for his services, saying he wanted to make the most of all of his visits. When I spoke with him, he was chatting with freshman guard Chris Wright and several of Wright's friends.

Monroe seemed at ease, clowning around with Jack the Bulldog (the man in the costume, not the actual dog) and speaking with several of Georgetown's other returning players.

I'll have more in a bit on students' reactions to Midnight Madness.
