Class of 2023 forward JP Estrella sets announcement date & time
By ADAM ZAGORIAJP Estrella, the 6-foot-11, 210-pound center from Brewster Academy (NH) and the Middlesex Magic AAU program, will announce his college choice at 1 p.m. on Sept. 2, he told ZAGSBLOG.
Estrella has a slew of offers but appears to be focusing on a handful of schools, including Iowa, Syracuse and Tennessee.
He followed up his Iowa visit with a trip to Syracuse last week.
“The Syracuse visit went great,” he said. “I did a lot of fun stuff with the team and the staff and really enjoyed walking around campus again. Their message to me was I’m one of there top recruits that they want and that they think I will be perfect for them!”
He previously visited Tennessee.
“They really just want me to be a play-making big and they feel like I can fit that role really well,” he said of Tennessee. “With my AAU team, I’m a very vocal big, too. They really can just see myself mesh with the coaches and the players and the overall program in general.”
Estrella has no other visits planned at the moment.
