We reached Gomez shortly after his family vacation and he confirmed that he'll be joining Shawn Finney's Tulane program in the fall of 2004.
"I tried to keep it really open for a while but I'm comfortable with them," Gomez said. "It's not too far from home and it's kind of close but not too close."
Gomez didn't play with Sports Academy in last month's AAU nationals but we've seen him with the team in the past. He's got a strong body and does work inside. However, he's been expanding his game since the summer.
"I've been really working on my individual skills as far as my outside shooting. I'm already used to playing the post but this summer I've spent a lot of time getting used to playing on the perimeter."
