6'5" guard Sandy Cohen of Seymour (WI) HS announced on twitter this afternoon that he has verbally committed to Marquette.
Cohen (@SandyCohenIII) tweeted: Officially committed to Marquette it has been my dream since I can remember! Making dreams a reality.
The rising junior shot onto the national radar this spring in his first season playing with Playground Elite AAU program going from a virtual unknown to Scout's No. 90 ranked prospect nationally.
Cohen averaged 9.3 points per game during the Nike EYBL season for Playground Elite, showcasing a strong ability to get into the lane and create for himself and others. He shot 42% from the field, 77% from the free throw line and 38.6% from beyond the arc.
In addition to scoring the ball, scouts and college coaches were attracted to Cohen's ability to contribute in a more than one facet. He averaged 4.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.
Cohen was rewarded for his strong play with invites to the Kevin Durant and LeBron James Skills Academy where he was able to compete against the top players nationally.
Even after a strong spring and summer of basketball many believe Cohen is just scratching the surface of his potential. Standing at 6'5" with a 6'9" wingspan, Cohen possesses the size and skills necessary to play a number of positions (1-3) at the collegiate level.
Cohen is the second commit of the 2014 class for Marquette head coach Buzz Williams, joining fellow four star prospect Malek Harris .
