CTK Big Man Now Has Short List Of Schools

Reporter Mike Sullivan has an interview with Christ The King big man Andrew Gabriel ...

Andrew Gabriel, a 6-foot-5, 220-pound inside forward for Christ The King High School in Middle Village, N.Y., stated last night that his list is short and he is ready to take some campus visits.

"I am looking to set up a visit to Providence," Gabriel said last night after competing in the regional Jordan All Star game held at Madison Square Garden.

"I have to talk to the coaches at Providence and set up the visit. I am not sure when it will be but it will be soon."

Gabriel, a player who makes his living around the basket, scored eight points and grabbed five rebounds in 18 minutes of action playing for the City team. His ability to grab rebounds and score on putbacks has other schools showing interest too.

"I am also considering Manhattan and St. John's," Gabriel said. "I am probably going to take a look around St. John's in the next week. I have seen it before but this time I will take more time."

Andrew said he is half open and half not. "Right now I am looking at these schools," he said. When asked about Duquesne and whether it was still on the list, Gabriel shrugged his shoulders and said, "No."

Gabriel does have an offer from one of the three schools. "Manhattan has offered me," he said. "I am in the process of discussing possible offers from both (Providence and St. John's) schools."

Andrew hopes to have a decision soon. "Hopefully by the early part of May," he stated.
