Windsor & Woodstock’s Foreman MAAC Bound
Windsor High School alum and current Woodstock Academy post-grad Lawrence Foreman announced his verbal commitment to Rider University over the weekend.
Foreman had been one of Woodstock’s biggest stock-risers from the fall open gym season and is also one of the most improved prospects in New England over the course of the last year.
A native of Jamaica, Foreman first played for the St. Thomas More varsity team upon arriving in the U.S. before transferring to Windsor for his senior year to play for head coach Ken Smith.
“When he arrived at Windsor, he would tell people he didn’t understand me,” Smith recalled to NERR. “as time went on, he began to listen better. He kept working hard and would ask for extra workouts. By the end of the season you could see he wanted to play at the next level.”
Foreman, who played some with the Boston Warriors on the AAU circuit, had been a surprise standout for Woodstock this fall as he exceeded expectations with his size and budding skill-set, picking up multiple division I offers because of it.
"Lawrence is a guy with a high-ceiling and just beginning to touch who he is going to be," said Woodstock head coach Jacque Rivera. "He has steadily improved since his time in the CIAC until now."
Foreman discussed his commitment with the Woodstock Athletics media director earlier this week:
