Aaren Edmead, a 5-foot-10, 165-pound point guard from Deer Park High on Long Island, has committed to Wagner.
A former UMass-Lowell commit, Edmead is a playmaking guard with great handle and vision and a strong jumper.
He also considered St. Francis-Brooklyn and UMass-Lowell.
“I love the coaching staff,” Edmead told SNY.tv. “The head coach [Bashir Mason] is a point guard from New Jersey. They preach defense first and play an uptempo offense. I’m also a lockdown defender who thrives in an uptempo offense. So it felt like the best fit.”
Edmead is Wagner’s third 2014 commit, joining point guard Joseph Cooper and shooting guard Corey Henson.
