    KeglerOak Hill Academy has already had one major college announcement this fall.

    Now following Harry Giles’ pledge to Duke on Friday, Mario Kegler is expected to make his college announcement on Wednesday at about 3 p.m., Oak Hill coach Steve Smith told SNY.tv.

    The 6-foot-6 Kegler cut his list on Monday to Indiana, Maryland and Mississippi State and has visited all three schools. He eliminated Arizona State and Baylor.

    Kegler is one of six Oak Hill players who will sign their National Letters of Intent on Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period.

    As for Kegler’s upside, Smith said: “Big strong kid, almost 6-7. Working with him on his body. He’s about 235, he needs to be 220-225. He’s more of a wing guard.

    “Great shooter, 3- point range, good off the bounce. Very good in the pick and roll. Gets to the basket ball well. Can rebound his position and he’s a high, high level player.”
