Wilson to Seton Hill

Washington High School junior basketball player Troy Wilson made an oral commitment Monday night to Seton Hill University, a Division II school located in Greensburg.

Wilson, a 6-4 forward/guard, averaged 13.7 points and was the leading rebounder for the Prexies, who finished 25-4 and advanced to the PIAA Class AA semifinals. Wilson was recently selected to the Observer-Reporter's All-District Small School first team.

Wilson received a full scholarship and selected Seton Hill over Akron, Buffalo, Wright State, Gannon and Fairmont State.

Seton Hill, coached by Tony Morocco, competes in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The Griffins completed their inaugural season as a full-fledged Division II program with an 11-17 record. Among Seton Hill's players is former Ringgold player Kellen Holmes.

Congrats Troy. Can't beat a full a scholarship and an opportunity to continue playing basketball. Keep your head on straight for another and then go get that college degree. Until then, I look forward to watching you play another year at THE HIGH. Next year will be very different so a lot of guys will be looking to for leadership. Continue to work hard and get better. Keep your grades up and stay out of trouble. It rare hearing about a basketball player out of THE HIGH to get a scholarship and actually use it. I have a feeling that you can and will do it and utimately give children in this community a positive "hoopstar" to look up to. You might not think it but you will give hope to many kids. It's important that children see there is a future for basketball players outside of the street life. You have so excellent guidance and your Dad should proud. Congrats again.

To everyone else who posts, please don't bother with any a negative comments. Any posts left should be supportive for a 17 year old young man that is doing his best to better himself. There is no reason to come on here and bring negative comments to someone that is probably half of your age. I hope this does not happen. Show some support!

Congrats all the way! One questioin though. Why commit so early. I realize its close to home but with some D1's looking, why not wait and see if they would offer full rides too?

While some late scholarships can open in DI hoops, normally, these kids have offers before they play a game as a junior.

Wilson made a wise move taking a full scholarship at a place where he'll get a quality education.
