Owen de Graaf 2017

Choate Rosemary Hall and Middlesex Magic forward Owen de Graaf committed to Stonehill College on Wednesday.

A Canadian native who arrived in the United States last year when he transferred into Choate and subsequently joined the Magic, de Graaf picked up multiple full scholarship offers this summer.

He took to his twitter account on Wednesday to confirm the news of his commitment to the Northeast 10 Conference school.

"You'd be pressed to find a more dedicated teammate and all around person than Owen de Graaf," said Choate head coach Drew Dawson. "To say I enjoy coaching this kid is an understatement. With his work ethic and ability to stretch the floor, he's suitable for a number of scholarship situations, but all along it's been about the right fit for Owen. Coach Kraus and Stonehill couldn't be a better match."

The 6-foot-8 southpaw is a prototypical stretch-four-man who has range out to the arc, the frame to bang inside and a high motor.

He joins Brendan Hoban to become the second member of the Magic's 2017 class to accept a full athletic scholarship to a division II school.
