Lawrence to Visit Fordham & Manhattan, Then Decide
Transferring Cincinnati forward Jermaine Lawrence will visit Fordham and Manhattan on Wednesday and then decide soon thereafter, sources confirmed to SNY.tv.
The news was first reported by Zach Braziller of the New York Post.
Fordham had not initially made Lawrence’s final list of three, but made a late bid and will get a visit.
Lawrence visited Iona and Hofstra last week.
He is expected to decide sometime after Wednesday visits between the four local schools.
The 6-foot-9 Lawrence began his high school career at Queens-based PSAL power Cardozo before leaving in the middle of junior year for Pope John XXIII. An injury-shortened senior season saw him average 13.3 points and 7.5 rebounds in just 11 games.
