Sources told us that the former St. John The Baptist High School player (Long Island, New York) accepted a scholarship offer from Vermont.
There were a few schools showing interest in Elbaum before his decision to attend Vermont. Hofstra had been showing interest. Josh even took a visit there, saying the trip was a great one.
However, head coach Tim Welsh resigned while the highly regarded assistant coach Mo Cassara was given the job. Today, Josh decided he'll play for Vermont.
ELBAUM PREVIOUSLY SAID:
"I'm seeing if I can get into Dartmouth. My coach is also talking to Colgate and St. Francis of New York."
Elbaum had some interest from Wagner, a school that has offered him a scholarship too, according to Elbaum.
Elbaum has shown the ability to help his team in many ways. He has nice size for a lead guard and has impressed the reporters on this website many times with his ability to distribute, score, defend, and rebound.
BRIAN TOWEY'S EVALUATION OF JOSH ELBAUM'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:
A pass-first point guard with good size for his position, Elbaum has strong vision and defends well on the ball.
