After taking visits to Minnesota, Creighton, Iowa and Vanderbilt, Riley LaChance settled on his college choice Monday evening. LaChance confirmed to that he is headed to play for Kevin Stallings at Vanderbilt.

"I think from the time I visited to the time now I couldn't stop thinking about Vanderbilt," LaChance told "The coaching staff, the players, the community, the University, the campus, I loved everything about it. I just felt it was right."

"I feel excited to play for a guy like coach Stallings," he added. "He's been there for 15 years and he's a legendary coach. He's done some amazing things and I'm looking forward to being a part of their family."

LaChance, a standout at Brookfield (Wisc.) Central, said he knew Vanderbilt was the place for him after meeting with his parents and going over the pros and cons of the Nashville based school.

"I think after I took my officials and sat down with my mom and my dad and after all the questions they asked me, it led to Vanderbilt," he said. "After I visited Iowa this weekend, I think it was clear in my head that's where I want to go."

A three-star shooting guard, LaChance has built his reputation at the high school level as a skilled shooter that can play both on and off the ball. He said Vanderbilt's offense and the way they use their guards fits his style of play.

"I think one of my strengths is playing off ball screens and that's one thing they do," LaChance said. "They run a lot of them. I think that was a big thing for me. I think I fit perfectly in their offense and I fit perfectly under coach Stallings. I really look forward to playing for him."

Vanderbilt now has a trio of commitments in their 2014 class. LaChance joins four-star shooting guard Matthew Fisher-Davis and three-star combination guard Wade Baldwin to make up their current class.

LaChance is ranked No. 29 at the shooting guard position in the 2014 class.
