2016 ECU Commit Transfers
After committing to the Pirates in early June Elijah Hughes has now decided to leave Kennedy Catholic High School (NY) to spend his final season at South Kent High School (CT). The 6-foot-6, 210-pound versatile guard said that the decision to transfer prior to his senior year was a personal choice that was carefully thought out. “It was nothing personal against Kennedy Catholic,” Hughes explained. “It’s a great school but I had to make a decision for myself. I felt that South Kent has better academics and better opportunities for me to better myself.” This summer Hughes elected to not play on any high-level summer circuit but instead to take the summer to fine tune his skills. The guard noted that his early summer commitment to East Carolina also played a role in the decision to not join an AAU team this past summer. While not competing in games Hughes feels like he was able to develop his own skills on a deeper level. Already considering himself an above average defender, Hughes spent the summer taking his shooting skills to the next level. Hughes noted that his relationship with ECU is still going well and it has only improved since he committed over the summer. “The relationship is really good,” Hughes said. “The coaches and I talk every day, just checking in. I’m also starting to get to know some of the players on social media, just starting to communicate, so it’s going pretty good.” The newly uniformed South Kent Senior hopes to at least make one more visit to Greenville this September.
