Former Liverpool star Charles Pride commits to Bryant, Symir Torrence sets decision date
A couple of former Section III boys basketball stars are making waves at the next level.
Charles Pride led the Liverpool Warriors to last year's New York State, Class AA Championship. Now, he's starring at Putnam Science Academy in Connecticut.
Pride announced his intent to commit to Bryant University on Friday, per his Twitter account.
Adam Finkelstein is a basketball recruiting expert for ESPN, announcing the news first on his Twitter account Friday afternoon.
Finkelstein noted in his tweet that Pride "had played his way into A10 offers this year", referencing his improvement to be courted by schools in the Atlantic-10 such as St. Joseph's, Rhode Island and St. Bonaventure, among others.
On another note, former Syracuse Academy of Science star Symir Torrence announced a decision day for when he plans to choose his college destination.
Torrence, a four-star prospect according to Rivals, is a Central New York native and last played for the Atoms during his sophomore year.
He's since left the area to continue his prep school career at Vermont Academy, where his recruiting stock has taken off.
Torrence took official visits to Butler, Marquette and Cincinnati, while others such as Syracuse, Maryland and Washington were also involved in his recruitment.
