Dubois Will Stay Close To Home

Jared Dubois was originally headed to SMU, but he had a change of heart and opened up his recruitment. A Southern California WCC program is the beneficiary as Dubois will play his college ball close to home...

Jared Dubois, 6-2 SR PG/SG Los Angeles (Calif.) Westchester, has committed to Loyola Marymount.

"It really came down to San Diego and Loyola," said Dubois. "Coach Grier is a great guy and a great coach -- I really enjoyed getting to know him. But I felt very comfortable with everyone at Loyola, from the Director of Operations (Gabe Carter) to the Head Coach. In particular, I was really impressed with Coach Scholl. He's done a lot of things outside of basketball, including AIDS prevention in South Africa, that really impressed me."

Dubois went on to say, "I'm also really comfortable with the players. They have a great group of guys. I plaed with LaRon (Armstead) in AAU ball and Isaiah (Jenkins) was on my high school team."

Dubois was originally slated to go to SMU, but he had a change of heart and opened up his recruitment. Fresno State and Colorado State were also showing some level of interest prior to Dubois making his choice.
