Ed Cooley is now half way to the “Friar Four.”
The Providence coach on Thursday landed a verbal pledge from Paschal Chukwu, the 7-foot-1 center from Fairfield (CT) Prep, who chose the Friars over St. Joe’s, where his sister attends.
SNY.tv reported Wednesday that Chukwu was down to Providence and St. Joe’s.
“I’ve known coach Cooley for three years,” Chukwu told the Providence Journal, referring to Cooley’s time as coach at Fairfield. “I’ve gotten to know them really well. Providence is a program on the rise and I’m looking forward to playing for coach Cooley.”
