Symir Torrence tells Prep Circuit he has committed to Marquette. The Eagles have landed their first class of 2020 recruit and Torrence is a great player to start with. The Vermont Academy point guard is an excellent floor general and should make an immediate impact when he arrives there. He broke down his decision for Prep Circuit.
Q: What school have you decided on?
A: “I’ve decided to go to Marquette,” said Torrence.
Q: Why was Marquette the best choice for you?
A: “What stuck out was just the coaching staff with how they want to make me better on and off the court,” he said. “They don’t just want to push me to be a better point guard, they want to get me to the next level. They want me to reach my dreams and get to the NBA.”
Q: What made you comfortable there when you went on your visit?
A: “The whole community itself and just being with the guys made me comfortable,” Torrence said. “They were just fun to hang out with and I can just see myself hanging out with them every day. I can’t wait to get to college and meet those guys.”
Q: Marquette has given you the option to commit either as a class of 2019 or 2020 recruit. Is there any update on that?
A: “For right now I’m 2020 and I’m committing as 2020,” he said. “If I want to reclass up I’ll make that decision later on.”
Q: How do you think you fit in with how they play on the floor?
A: “I think I fit in perfectly there, Coach Wojciechowski told me he needs a point guard because Markus Howard is leaving in two years,” Torrence said. “They need someone to step up and they like that I’m a pass-first point guard. I also can create shots for myself and other guys.”
Noah Hutchins, a class of 2019 PG from The Park School (NY), has picked up an offer from UC Riverside.
