It was Haase’s last visit, to South Carolina, that made the difference.
The 6-foot-10 forward, who is from Chile but attends Miami Christian School in Florida, committed to the Gamecocks on Thursday morning.
“I’m very excited to sign my Letter of Intent today with South Carolina,” Haase said in a statement released by Miami Christian, as published by The State newspaper in Columbia, South Carolina. “It’s been a longtime dream of mine to play NCAA college basketball. I’m very fortunate to be in this position. I want to thank the University of Purdue, Pittsburgh, Missouri for all their efforts in recruiting me. I want to thank my mentor Art Alvarez, and my high school coach Juan Cardona. I want to also thank my home country of Chile for all the support you have provided me over the years.”
Haase had previously committed to Colorado State but re-opened his recruitment.
