Class of 2020 point guard from Vermont Academy (VT) Symir Torrence has taken three official visits thus far to Butler, Marquette, and Cincinnati. He took his first official to Butler on October 26th and liked what he saw from the Bulldogs.
“It was a fantastic visit and coach LaVall Jordan is terrific,” Torrence said. “I loved the coaching staff and they have a family atmosphere throughout the whole team. They interacted well with me and their whole system fits with me. It was a good overall experience.”
Three days later, he took an official visit to Marquette where he got familiar with their team.
“That visit was similar to Butler in how everything there was about family,” he said. “The guys get together a lot and have good chemistry. That’s what I like to see in a team.”
Cincinnati got an official visit from Torrence on November 6th where he got to see them take on one of their biggest rivals.
“The visit there was good and I got to see the game there, which was good too,” said Torrence. “It was a good experience to watch them play a big team like Ohio State so that was good to see.”
Six other programs remain active with him right now and some of them could receive an official visit from him after this high school season.
“Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Washington, Syracuse, Maryland and Pittsburgh,” said Torrence.
Teams have offered him the option to go as a member of the class of 2019 or 2020. Torrence isn’t planning on deciding which class anytime soon.
“Right now, I am just focused more on high school basketball and the schools after me. I’m not really focused on deciding between 2019 or 2020 for right now.”
‘19 Joel Kabimba & ‘20 Ben Li from Middleburg Academy (VA) are both on unofficial visits to LIU-Brooklyn.
Daryl Banks, a class of 2019 PG from The Patrick School (NJ), just committed to St. Peter's.
