Delarosa Enjoys Pittsburgh Visit; More Expected to Come
Adonis Delarosa enjoyed his weekend visit to Pittsburgh and may take other visits before announcing his decision April 18.
“I like what they’re doing over there,” the 6-foot-11 Delarosa told SNY.tv.
Asked how he might fit in there, he added, “They need a low-post guy that can score and also step out and hit the mid-range.”
Delarosa, recently selected for the Jordan Brand Regional Game April 18, said he has no other visits set although it’s possible he could trip to some combination of Rutgers, South Carolina and other schools.
“I still haven’t set anything up yet,” he said.
St. John’s will need bigs after JaKarr Sampson declared for the NBA Draft and with Orlando Sanchez and God’sgift Achiuwa graduating, but Delarosa previously said he isn’t necessarily in the mood to stay home.
“To tell you the truth, I didn’t even think about staying in New York,” he told SNY.tv earlier this month. “I just go with anybody. I just want to go where I’m going to be successful so if that means I have to go out to Oklahoma or something, I would go.”
