Tell everyone about your decision to commit to St. Peter's College.
On the 5th of May I visited and committed to St.Peters College. My recruitment started in the 10th grade. I started receiving letters from D2 schools then in my junior year some D1 schools came knocking including offers from Harvard and Yale. At this point in my life my goals were to go to one of these schools but I wanted to wait. Senior year was a complete turn around since I didn't commit on the spot Harvard, and Yale both got guards to come in and I was found in the dark. A couple other schools were looking at me like Rider, St. Francis Pa., Penn, Bucknell, New Hampshire, and Delaware State, but after a visit at St.Peters I knew this was the place where I wanted to be. During my visit I saw every aspect of the school and worked out with the team. They welcomed me and I felt as if I could do some damage on that level. My plans are to go to St.Peters and be a gym rat, get better, bigger, and take my game to another level.
What was your best game?
