    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Ron Giplaye, a 6-6, 215-pound power forward from Notre Dame Prep, has verbally committed to Providence.

    “Yeah, the reason I picked Providence is I like their system,” Giplaye said by phone. “I like the way they play up and down.”

    Giplaye will join BABC teammate Gerard Coleman, who previously picked the Friars.

    “I thought it would be good that we both played together in college,” Giplaye said.

    He mentioned that he also had looks from URI, Arizona, George Washington, Delaware.

    “UConn was ready to pull the trigger,” said BABC coach Chris Driscoll. “Not too many people saw him because he was hurt when his school was in a couple big tournaments.

    Giplaye reportedly outplayed Jared Sullinger, a top 5 player in the Class of 2010, at the Nike Memorial Day Classic.

    “I’m somebody that attacks, goes to the rim, goes to the board, [does] everything,” he said.

    “He has muscles in places most people don’t even have places,” added recruiting expert Tom Konchalski. “He’s a very strong physical player. He went to Wilmington (Del.) High School and transferred to Notre Dame Prep.

    “He’s a power player, good athlete, plays hard around the rim, very strong and  physical.”
