Centennial CVI guard Dan McCarthy committed to the University of Guelph men's program Tuesday morning.
McCarthy is a 6-foot-2, 190-pound multi-talented guard who can probably play three - if not four - spots on the floor. He's thick, can shoot and was a leader of the Spartans two runs at OFSAA the past two seasons.
McCarthy toured the Guelph science facilities last week and left impressed. He is planning to study biomed. Western was also in the running for McCarthy's services.
I bumped into Guelph senior guard Nick Pankerichan and senior forward Jay Mott on the weekend. Both were hopeful McCarthy would choose Guelph. Both look forward to playing with him.
While McCarthy chose Guelph, his high school teammate Evan Schwantz, a two-sport star in basketball and volleyball, chose to play basketball at Laurier.
He's a 6-foot-7, 215-pound post player and won the District 10 MVP this season. However, he started playing basketball later in life and might take a season or two to progress.
