2010 Prospect Accepts Scholarship Offer

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a recruiting update on former Long Island star Josh Elbaum, who has made a college decision ...

Josh Elbaum, a 6-foot-3 multi-versatile guard prospect formerly from Northfield Mount Hermon in Massachusetts, will head north to play division one college basketball, according to sources.

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.

PREVIOUS EVALUATION:

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.
