The difference this time is that three schools from top conferences have joined the fray. Mount Vernon coach Bob Cimmino said last night on Twitter that Pitt, Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech have joined the schools in pursuit of his 6-foot-4 senior guard.
Cousins had already received scholarship offers from Rhode Island, Iona, Manhattan, Central Connecticut, Stony Brook, Hofstra, St. Bonaventure and Towson prior to the season.
Cousins is currently the starting point guard for Mount Vernon, the five-time defending Class AA champ. He leads the team in scoring and has helped the Knights to an 12-2 start, including a third-place finish in last weekend’s Montverde Academy Invitational.
