  • Delarosa to Announce April 18

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Adonis Delarosa will announce his college decision April 18 and has a top five of South Carolina, St. John’s, Fordham, Rutgers and Hofstra, Christ the King coach Joe Arbitello told SNY.tv.

    That is also the date of the Jordan Brand Classic at Barclays Center, and it’s possible Delarosa could be selected to the Regional Game.

    It’s unclear if the 6-foot-11 Delarosa will take visits before then, but he has previously mentioned tripping to South Carolina and St. John’s.

    “At this point I’m open to everybody,” Delarosa recently told SNY.tv.  “I just want to be at a place that wants me and that needs me.”

    Delarosa is an imposing physical specimen on the court, and is still working to get into better shape for the college game.  He weighed in at 330 last season, and is now all the way down to 267 and seems to have much better conditioning.  He said that before next season starts, wherever he ends up, he wants to weigh-in at 250 and get his “body toned up.”

    “Conditioning is the key,” New York recruiting expert Tom Konchalski said.  “As long as he gets in the best shape he can, he’s going to be a terrific college player.”

    **Check back later for an update on Delarosa’s game Thursday against Cardinal Hayes.
