Adonis Delarosa, Andre Walker to Announce Wednesday (UPDATED)
Adonis Delarosa moved up his announcement date to Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. from April 18.
“I will be committing on April 9th !! Was supposed to visit USC April 12th,” he Tweeted.
Christ the King point guard Andre Walker will also announce Wednesday for either Boston University or Loyola (Md.). The 6-foot Walker was named MVP after scoring 25 points when Christ the King beat Long Island Lutheran last month in the New York State Tournament of Champions “AA” Final.
The 6-foot-11 Delarosa recently visited Pittsburgh and said he enjoyed it.
Pitt has five commits for 2014. Small forwards Sheldon Jeter and Ryan Luther and center Shaq Doorson signed early, while shooting guard Detrick Mostella and power forward/center Tyrone Haughton verbally committed.
St. John’s — which has no commits for 2014 — also remains confident about its chances for the Christ the King big man. The Johnnies need bigs with the departures of Chris Obekpa, JaKarr Sampson, Orlando Sanchez and God’sgift Achiuwa.
South Carolina, Alabama and other schools have also been involved.
“Goodmorning everybody two more days until I make my college decision , this is by far the hardest decision I had to make,” he Tweeted Monday.
