Lance Storrs might be featured this week on VH1's Best Week Ever show. The 6-foot-5 wing from Decatur (Ga.) Columbia High School won a state championship and now he is headed to the ACC in less than seven days.
Storrs told Rivals.com that he will take his championship rï¿½sumï¿½ to Georgia Tech as a member of the Yellow Jackets' 2007 recruiting class.
"I felt like Georgia Tech was a good place for me academically and athletically," Storrs said. "They have some guards that will be on their way out when I get there. I feel like I can learn a lot from Anthony Morrow and Lewis Clinch.
"I like the vibe I felt at Georgia Tech. I like the coaches and the players. They are real receptive to me. That's why I decided that Georgia Tech is the place where I will attend."
Storrs averaged 14 points for Columbia in Georgia's Final Four of the Class 4A bracket of the playoffs. His size, basketball IQ and shooting touch will be a nice compliment to the athleticism of Storr's AAU teammate Gani Lawal, another 2007 Georgia Tech commitment.
"The fact that me and Gani enjoy playing with each other means a lot," Storrs said. "He and I play really well together. He's a very strong and athletic big man that wants to work and get better. We are really familiar with each other."
Storrs picked Georgia Tech over interest from Alabama, Kansas, South Carolina and Tennessee. The three-star junior said Georgia Tech's proximity played no part in his decision.
"Being close to home wasn't a factor," Storrs said. "It just happened to be a school that had all of the things that I was looking for in a school and it happened to be in Atlanta. I'm happy with my decision. I'm 100 percent committed."
Georgia Tech has a nice collection of state champions coming to Atlanta. Both Storrs and Lawal won a state championship in Georgia as did Javaris Crittenton and Florida big man Zach Peacock.
