Silva to the SEC

Three-star power forward Chris Silva has made his decision, and he is headed to South Carolina.

Three-star power forward Chris Silva wanted to make his decision on his birthday, and he did just that. The athletically gifted 6-foot-9 Silva made his choice at his high school and he is headed to South Carolina.

A long and athletic player with high level motor, Silva narrowed his final list of schools down to Seton Hall, South Carolina, and Rhode Island with the Gamecocks winning out.

Silva announced the decision at his school saying, “I have decided to play my college basketball next year at South Carolina.”

This is a big win for South Carolina because it gives the Gamecocks a defensive presence who can block shots and also rebound at a high level against legit athletes in the SEC. Also it is a big win for a high profile kid who had other big time offers.

By committing Silva is the first pledge for the Gamecocks in the class of 2015.
