He had committed to Manhattan a while ago. The 2010 guard is a solid pickup for the Manhattan basketball program.
We've had a chance to watch him compete several times over the past year. His play continues to improve. He possesses a nice feel for the game, does a good job with making decisions with the basketball, and can help his team win a game in many ways.
Alvardo plays hard on both sides of the ball too. He should be able to help the Manhattan basketball program as a freshman too as he plays for a high school program that demands hard play both defensively and offensively.
