Tevin Baskin, a 6-foot-7 forward out of Stamford (Conn.) Trinity Catholic, committed to Quinnipiac on Wednesday, choosing that school over Manhattan and New Orleans.
Baskin said he chose Tom Moore’s program because of its proximity to home and because of the size of the school.
“It’s big, but it’s not huge,” Baskin told his hometown Stamford Times. “It’s small, but it’s not tiny.”
He added: “I’m just happy I got this process out of the way and now I just can just relax.”
Baskin initially drew interest from Big East and other high-major schools, but then said he hadn’t heard back from some of those programs.
Last season, Baskin averaged 20 points and 11 rebounds for Trinity Catholic, which finished 24-2 and was upset by eventual state champ Bulkeley in the Class L quarterfinals.
