One of the biggest surprises for our HoopSeen staff was Howard University grabbing another big-time prospect.

The 6-foot-9 lanky forward who spent this past travel season with Team Curry picked Head Coach Kenny Blakeney over offers from The ACC's Clemson University, Providence, VCU, Wichita State, UNC-Greensboro, UNC-Wilmington and San Jose State among others.

Mading and his unsigned senior teammate, Jamarii Thomas will team up this season for one of the top NCISAA teams in the state.
With the addition of Mading, Howard University has two recruits over the past four months that will call Washington, D.C. home.
