Funk Makes Pick

Ryan Funk 2015



St. Thomas More swingman Ryan Funk is heading to Marist next year after committing to head coach Mike Maker over the weekend.

He took to his twitter account to announce his decision on Saturday afternoon:

Funk went largely under-recruited throughout his post-graduate season but became an increasingly popular prospect in recent weeks, adding several division I offers, including three from the MAAC, before deciding on the Red Foxes.

The six-foot-five swingman came to St. Thomas More from upstate New York and made it immediately clear that he was an intriguing prospect combining good size on the wing with the ability to make three-pointers in bunches as well as the athleticism to play above the rim.

Funk only got better as the season went on, emerging as one of the best shooters in the prep ranks, and ended up playing a critical role in St. Thomas More's latest post-season run as he helped the Chancellors to the finals of the NEPSAC tournament and the semifinals of the National Prep Championship.

Perhaps the Chancellors' most impressive achievement this year though is the fact that Funk becomes the 7th player in the class of 2015 to accept a full athletic scholarship when not one was committed upon their arrival in September.
