Adam Zagoria covers basketball at all levels. He is the author of two books and an award-winning journalist whose articles have appeared in ESPN The Magazine, SLAM, Sheridan Hoops, Sports Illustrated, Basketball Times and in newspapers nationwide.
Kevin Marfo, a 6-foot-8, 235-pound power forward from Worcester (Mass.) Academy, will announce his college choice on Friday afternoon, he told SNY.tv.
A native of Bergenfield, N.J., Marfo is considering Boston College, Providence and George Washington, and has visited all three schools.
Here’s his take on each school:
Boston College: “Great academics and a young team. The coaching staff is motivated to change the culture of the program.”
Providence: “Winning culture. The team is working hard to bring back another Big East title.”
GW: “Winning culture and mature team. They are looking to erupt in the Atlantic 10.”
Marfo averaged 11.3 points and 8.8 rebounds in 21 games this year with BABC on the Nike EYBL circuit.
“I will bring rebounding, toughness and interior scoring,” he said.
Said BABC director Leo Papile: “He really competes day in and ay out. He can be a double-figure rebounder in a Power 5 conference.”
