VA’s Evee plays way to D1 level
Boston College High School alum and Vermont Academy post-graduate Travis Evee made a verbal commitment to Virginia Military Institute over the weekend.
VMI is a military school in Virginia that competes in the Southern Conference (SoCon).
Evee became the second local prep product to commit to the Keydets in the last week, joining Cushing Academy's Sean Conway.
A Randolph (MA) native, Evee had a decorated high school career at BCHS who averaged 21 points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals per game as a seneior while scoring over 1,400 career points. He was a three time Catholic Conference All-Star and two time All-Scholastic selection.
Over the summer, he was the focal point of a Metro Boston squad that made waves throughout the July live period before arriving at Vermont for his post-graduate season.
It was during his post-graduate year though, that Evee's game went to a new level as he built up his body and played a much more efficient floor game against a higher caliber of competition than he had seen before.
"Travis Evee is incredibly consistent with his disciplined approach and I have no doubt that this will translate to success at the D1 level," said Vermont Academy head coach Alex Popp. "He's an A level shot-maker, an excellent on-ball defender, and his pick-and-roll reads progressed all season long. He had as productive of a post-graduate year as I've seen."
Evee led VA to the semifinals of the Class AA tournament and was named All-NEPSAC following the season.
Below are some of his season highlights.
