The No. 9 center and No. 51 player in the Rivals150, Jerome Habel, informed RivalsHoops.com last night that he did not get the score that he needed to qualify on his SAT.
“I am not worried,” said the 6-foot-9, 196-pound shot blocker. “I will take it again. It was the first time I have taken it, and I took it without any tutoring. Next time I will get some help getting ready for it.”
Habel said he that he was planning to retake the test on Jan. 24th, but that is the weekend that he is visiting Florida State. Sometime in February, he will try it again.
Besides Florida State, Habel said he would visit Cincinnati, Houston, and USC. All four of these schools have extended offers according to Habel.
Habel also indicated that Florida State and Cincinnati are his clear favorites going into his visits.
Habel estimated that he was averaging a triple double, with 22 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 blocks per game for Marriott Charter Schoot in D.C. In a recent outing, Habel blocked an astounding 20 shots.
