PSA’s Perez Makes Pick

Putnam Science Academy and PSA Cardinals' product Jose Perez announced his commitment to Gardner-Webb on Monday.

Perez took to his twitter account to make his announcement and thank his family and coaches who had helped him reach his goal.

Perez arrived at Putnam Science around this time last year after transferring from Wings Academy in the Bronx but didn't suit up until the beginning of the 2017-2018 season.

While he has always been known for his motor and work-ethic, Perez' skill set has dramatically improved in the last year, as too has his academic resume. After putting in the work in the classroom to get his transcript right, Perez has also dramatically improved his shooting, ball-handling, and overall offensive game while simultaneously establishing himself as a leader for both programs.

The Mustangs are currently riding a 17 game winning streak including the championship of this weekend's Brewster Invitational.

His versatility projects as almost as valuable as his toughness at the next level as, at six-foot-five-plus, he's capable of both playing and defending multiple positions.

Below are some of his highlights from earlier in the season.
