St. Joe's Snares Swingman

Chet Stachitas, a 6-4 swingman from Florida, committed to St. Joe's on Friday. Stachitas considered Davidson, Boston U., Princeton, Penn and received interest from Stanford. We'd heard all along that he wished to attend college near a major city and Philadelphia certainly qualifies.

The Hawks have themselves a very solid scorer. Stachitas is a much better athlete than most give him credit for. His jumper is reliable to 3-point range and he's been proven effective as a shooter on the move.

He was caught in a little AAU team transition phase for most of the summer. Stachitas started out with Fastbreak USA and then moved onto the Atlanta Celtics. One of the reasons why he received less attention than some others, was because everywhere he played he seemingly wasn't used enough. When he was on the floor, he got things done.

Stachitas is an excellent student. His parents attended Penn.
