Trinity Catholic basketball star Tevin Baskin will make a much-anticipated announcement of his college choice on Wednesday at noon at the school.
Baskin said Friday afternoon he has narrowed his decision down to four schools: Quinnipiac, Binghamton, New Orleans and Manhattan.
Baskin has visited each school except for Binghamton and was at Quinnipiac Wednesday night.
Baskin originally was going to reveal his choice Saturday, but decided he needed more time.
“I still have to talk over things with my family,” the 6-foot-6 center said. “I’ve basically been recruited by a lot of the conferences in the country. I’m planning not just for the next four years, but the next 40.”
With Baskin averaging 20 points and 11 rebounds, the Crusaders finished 24-2 last year. They lost to Stamford in the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference final and to Bulkeley in the CIAC Class L quarterfinals.
Trinity was 92-12 during Baskin’s four years and appeared in four straight conference finals, winning the title in 2008.
One of Baskin’s best games was in the CIAC Class LL championship against Crosby his junior year. Baskin finished with 35 points and 12 rebounds as the Crusaders almost defeated the state’s top-ranked team before missing a shot at the buzzer and losing, 82-79.
Baskin said he is looking forward to putting the entire recruiting process behind him and moving forward.
“I’ll feel like the weight of the world is off my shoulders,” he said.
