NMH’s Dolan Picks Cornell
Northfield Mount Hermon point guard Greg Dolan made a verbal commitment to Cornell University on Saturday, punctuating an extremely succesful post-graduate campaign for the western New York native.
Dolan, who graduated from Williamsville South High School last year and played with NE6 in the Under Armour Association last spring and summer, was named second team All-New England after averaging 12.5 points, 5.8 assists, 4.6 rebounds, and 2.3 steals.
More importantly, he established himself as a leader for an NMH team that defied the odds by winning their third NESPAC AAA championship in the last four years.
Dolan took to his twitter account Saturday afternoon to confirm the news.
“A big part of my decision was being able to find a great combination of academics and basketball in a school. With being able to compete in a great conference for basketball and receive an Ivy League education at the same time, Cornell is a great fit for me,” Dolan said. “NMH and Coach Carroll prepared me to be ready for college basketball right when I step on campus. I'm excited to play for Coach Earl and compete for an Ivy League championship.”
Dolan evolved into a true big point guard this year. He's a stat-sheet stuffer who not only provides leadership but is also a top-notch defender, both on and off the ball.
He becomes the third member of NMH's 2019 class to commit to an Ivy League school joining Chris Ledlum (Harvard) and Max Lorca-Lloyd (Penn).
