Famed AAU program DC Assault likely to rebrand as DC Premier

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

After DC Assault honcho Curtis Malone's arrest on federal drug charges last month, the future of the famous AAU program was unclear.

Malone had been connected to the program for years, although his influence and involvement had waned a bit in recent years. With that said, he was with the program when it produced the likes of Nolan Smith, Michael Beasley, Jeff Green, James White, Keith Bogans and others.

DC Assault had reportedly said it would no longer associate itself with Malone, and we got some concrete information on that over the weekend.

Under Armour is planning to launch a new AAU program in Washington D.C. called D.C. Premier. It will take the place of Assault, according to reports.

Jeff Ermann of Inside Maryland Sports says he “expects the staff and players to carry over from Assault under this new brand.”'

There were some reactions from some Assault alumni on Twitter.
