Master’s Eke Calls It
Master's School guard Ben Eke made a verbal commitment to Johns Hopkins University on Friday night.
Johns Hopkins is an extremely prestigious academic school that is ranked among the top ten national universities, considered the first research university in the United States, and coexists with Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, which was particularly important to Eke given his interest in pursuing pre-med.
Athletically, the NCAA division III school went 24-5 a year ago under first year head coach Josh Loeffler and both won the Centennial Conference Championship and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
"I'm very excited to see Ben choose exactly what he wanted in educations and athletics," said Master's head coach Tobias Ceasar. "Coach Loeffler did a wonderful job of recruiting him."
Eke is a steal at the division III level who had D1 offers and consistent Ivy League interest at this point last year but unfortunately missed almost the entire EYBL and AAU seasons with the BABC with injury.
He's a good athlete who can make shots from behind the arc, play both guard positions, and be a playmaker on the defensive end of the floor as well.
