Burch Chooses Friars

After Charlie Burch got out of his letter from St. Bonaventure, tons of schools came calling. The 6-6 Tabor Academy (Mass.) senior make his decision last night to play in the Big East.

For Charlie Burch, one visit was enough.

The Tabor Academy (Mass.) 6-7, 215-pound senior forward, who had signed with St. Bonaventure and was released from his letter-of-intent, committed to Providence late Wednesday night.

``I wennt there this past weekend on a visit and liked what they had to offer," Burch said. "In terms of playing time and everything else. I felt comfortable with the situation."

Burch was also considering Villanova, but did not end up taking a visit to Philadelphia.

``This gives me a chance to come right in and play," Burch added. "If Ryan Gomes stays, I can learn from one of the best players and go up against him every day and if he leaves, I'll get an even better chance to play."
