BREAKING NEWS: Maranatha’s Jeremy Major verbally commits to Pepperdine. It’s unlikely, though, that Division I schools will stop courting the junior point guard.

Maranatha’s Jeremy Major verbally commited to Pepperdine on Tuesday night, the Star-News has learned. Major, a junior point guard, had another offer from the Unviersity of Pacific, but other schools also were interested. Major, a three-year starter, is averaging 26.9 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.3 blocks for the 15-3 Minutemen. Major scored a game-high 24 points against Village Christian in the Olympic League opener last week, a game Pepperdine coaches attended. The Waves offered the next day. Major attended a Pepperdine game over the weekend and was in Malibu today meeting with admissions and, according to a source, decided it was the best fit for him. I’ll have more with Major on the blog Wednesday. My initial reaction was: Already? Major will become even more coveted at the end of the year heading into summer camp and then his final year. And just because Major’s already committed it doesn’t mean schools will stop recruiting him. Quite the opposite, schools will likely pursue him even harder. Still, you can’t go wrong with Pepperdine: scenic view, great education and rising program.
