Whyte Adds First D1 Offer

New England Recruiting Report | Friday, May 1st, 2015

St. Luke's (CT) sophomore forward Walter Whyte made a name for himself this past season, averaging 22 points and 9 rebounds per game while earning first team All-NEPSAC honors in Class C.

It's only been more of the same to start the AAU season as he's starred with High Rise Elite.

Two weeks ago, he was turning heads at the Northeast Hoops Festival, while last week it was a trip to Pittsburgh where he led his club to a 3-1 record at the Pittsburgh Jam Fest.

Sacred Heart was just one of the schools to track his progress this month, but on Thursday they became the first division I school to offer him a full scholarship.

The day was doubly sweet for Whyte since he earned an invitation to the prestigious Pangos All-American Camp next month in California, which is the same setting that another former High Rise product, Steve Enoch, starred at a year ago.

"Walter is not only extremely long and athletic, but he is also skilled both on the perimeter and in the paint," head coach Drew Gladstone said. "With two more years to develop, he is going to be even more of a matchup problem for defenders. He can also guard 1-5 and with a 3.0 GPA, he is a college coaches' dream recruit."

Below are some of his highlights from this past season at St. Luke's.
