Kirkland D2 Bound
Winchendon School and Metro Boston's Keyshawn Kirkland accepted a scholarship offer from Franklin Pierce University on Wednesday less than 24 hours after the Ravens offered the unsigned senior.
He confirmed his decision via his twitter account.

Kirkland is a 6-foot-5 southpaw wing who can put the ball in the basket in a variety of different ways. His size and offensive versatility make him a very difficult match-up problem while he's also worked to develop his body over the course of the last twelve months.
Kirkland was named All-NEPSAC this past winter after helping Winchendon advance to the finals of the Class C tournament.
“I'm truly happy for Keyshawn and his family and glad to see he received a firm offer and enjoyed his visit,” Metro Boston director Mauricio Vasquez said. “Last summer he broke his hand, which made his recruitment a bit difficult during the live period. He healed up and continued to improve and his hard work has paid off.”
