"I am honored and blessed to be in this position today. Thank you to my parents for guiding me through this journey. Thank you to all my past coaches and teammates, especially those at Appleton East and Wisconsin Fight Elite.
Without everyone's support, I would not be in this position today. I would also like to thank all the coaches I have been able to get to know during the recruiting process.
With that, I am announcing my commitment to Oregon State University where I will continue my academic and basketball career. GO BEAVS!"
