A Central New York native is finally realizing his dreams of becoming a Division-I men's basketball player.

Symir Torrence, a former standout guard at Syracuse Academy of Science, made his commitment known live on Fox Sports 1 on Sunday afternoon, as FS1 College Basketball Insider Evan Daniels announced Torrence's decision.

Torrence chose Marquette over offers from Cincinnati and Butler, among several others.

He was offered by Jim Boeheim and Syracuse University in August, but ultimately chose to take his talents to the midwest.

Torrence last starred for Syracuse Academy of Science during his sophomore year, but has since left town to attend Vermont Academy in hopes of growing his game and impressing Division-I coaches.

It seems like he's done just that.

Torrence is ranked as the No. 51-best prospect in the 2020 class, along with being considered as one of the 10-best guards in the class as well.

He plans to suit up at point guard in college, standing at 6'3" and weighing in at 180 pounds.
