Mading Makes His Pick

Springfield Commonwealth forward Marial Mading announced his verbal commitment to the University of Rhode Island on Tuesday morning.

Mading arrived at SCA mid-way through last season and has shown rapid improvement ever since.

The 6-foot-9 forward has major mismatch potential as he continues to fill out his frame and show increasingly frequent signs of playmaking ability and even a passing instinct off the dribble.

He spent the summer starring for L&L Running Rebels, and picked up his Rhode offer during the July evaluation period. First year head coach David Cox and his staff have made him a top priority ever since.

Mading joins Mekhi Long to become the second player to commit to Rhode Island thus far in the class of 2019.

Below are some of his summer highlights.
