Keith Benjamin, shooting guard from Mount Vernon High School (New York), did indeed pull the trigger tonight and committed to Pittsburgh.
It doesn’t get any bigger than Pittsburgh,” an elated Benjamin said. “One of the best schools in the Big East. Great coaches and players.”
Benjamin knows he will be joining a young team, but he relishes the challenge.
“It is going to be a young team with a lot of sophomores,” he said. “The heart and soul of the team will be young. We just have to get it done, and help Pitt not become a drop off school.”
Despite the allure of having signed with a quality high major program, Benjamin is still focused on the year at hand.
“We got some good games against people like Oak Hill,” he said. “I just want to play well and help my team advance in the tournaments. I also hope to make a spot in one of the big all-star tournaments.”
