Another Commitment Catch-Up
Members of the class of 2015 continue to finalize their college plans for next season. Here’s a look at some commitments from recent days:
- St. Thomas More post-graduate forward Ryan Peterson recently committed to division II Pace University. The six-foot-six forward graduated from Wethersfield High School in 2014 and made dramatic strides during his post-graduate season, ultimately earning scholarship attention from a variety of division II programs. Peterson is very skilled for his size, able to handle and pass the ball like a guard and make open shots out to the three-point line. Peterson becomes the 6th member of this year’s Chancellors team to earn an athletic scholarship for next season joining Steve Enoch (UConn), Sterling Taplin (Tulsa), Sean Hoehn (Sacred Heart), C.J. Byrd and Ian Gardner (Gannon).
- New Hampton post-graduate Bradley Jomard has committed to M.I.T. The six-foot-six swingman came to New Hampton from France and made consistent contributions for the Huskies, even cracking the team’s starting line-up for much of the season. A very heady player and outstanding passer, Jomard actually played the point guard position in Europe and has dramatically improved his three-point shooting this season. He ran with the Metro Boston AAU program last summer upon his arrival.
- The Kent School has announced their second commitment in as many weeks as post-graduate Stephon Sharp has accepted a recruited walk-on spot at the University of Minnesota. The six-foot-four swingman is a highly versatile player with a balanced floor game. He’s a scholarship caliber talent who will be returning to his home state to play for head coach Richard Pitino. Sharp was a key component of a Kent team that went 18-5 this season and earned the top seed in the NEPSAC Class A tournament.
- Marianapolis Prep senior guard Ryan Bernstein has also accepted a walk-on spot on a division I roster as he’ll head to the University of Maine next season. The New York native spent two seasons at Marianapolis and put up big numbers as a senior, developing into one of the team’s most consistent playmakers. He ran with House of Sports on the AAU circuit. He’s well known for his toughness and work-ethic and so he should have no problem making quality contributions to the Black Bear program.
- Another Marianapolis Prep product, Tom Horvat, is headed to RPI next season. Horvat had a storied program at Providence Country Day prior to his post-graduate season, scoring over 1900 career points. This season, he was another key contributor for a Marianapolis team that exceeded expectations and proved themselves to be a tough out in Class AA of the NEPSAC. RPI (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) is a private school of 5,000+ students in Troy, New York that competes in the Liberty League.
- Portland High School (ME) senior standout Liam Densmore is headed to Plymouth State University next year. A product of the MB Nation AAU program, Densmore is best known as a southpaw shooter who can make shots in bunches. In fact, he went a perfect 7-7 from behind the arc during a game earlier this season. Plymouth State is a member of the New Hampshire state system and competes in the Little East Conference.
