Rokas Gustys, a 6-foot-9, 245-pound forward from Oak Hill Academy, expects to make his college decision next week, he tells SNY.tv.
The Lithuanian is considering Hofstra, Rhode Island, UAB and Tulane.
Gustys is currently visiting Hofstra and said he likes it.
Gustys went for 12 points and 12 rebounds when Oak Hill beat Northside Christian in the quarterfinals of the Dick’s High School National Tournament earlier this month. Oak Hill ultimately lost in the final to Montverde (FL) Academy.
Wherever he lands, he said he plans to bring: “1. Toughness for sure; 2. I am a winner. Every program I played won; 3. Great teammate on the court.”
