Chicago native Trey Blue is going back to the big city. In fact, the three-star guard is going back to the biggest city in the country.
The 6-foot-3 guard will take his game to Fordham after his final year at Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, N.H. He committed on Monday.
"I chose Fordham first and foremost because of my relationship with Coach Wittenburg and the whole Fordham coaching staff," Blue said. "They showed the most interest throughout the whole recruiting process and I know that they really want me to come in and play right away for them."
Blue joins Jiovanny Fontan, Alberto Estwick, Kyrie Gordon and Lamar Thomas in Fordham's 2008 recruiting class. The Chicago native said he looks forward to stepping onto the floor with his fellow newcomers next season.
"We have one of the best recruiting classes coming in that Fordham have seen in a while and I am happy to be apart of that," Blue said. "I also like the fact that I will be depended on early and will play right away in one of the top conferences in the country, the Atlantic 10."
For the Rams, Blue gives the team another versatile guard that can score both on the wing and in the lane. He's a solid defender, too.
Blue also had interest from Drake, North Iowa, Old Dominion, Marshall and St. Louis.
Brewster head coach Jason Smith said Fordham is getting the total package.
"Trey has been our most consistent perimeter shooter this year," Smith said. "He's our third leading scorer and is able to play both guard positions. [Trey is a] fantastic young man, who will be a nice addition to the Fordham program and community."
