Walter Whyte, the 6-foot-5 small forward from St. Luke's (CT) School and the PSA Cardinals, announced his commitment to Boston University on Tuesday.
Whyte becomes the first commit in coach Joe Jones' 2017 class. Ranked the No. 41 small forward by 247Sports.com, he took his official visit to Boston University last month (Sept. 23) and had plans to visit Davidson in October. Whyte held offers from schools such as Davidson, Northeastern, Pennsylvania, Yale, among others.
"I have an amazing relationship with Coach Jones and he has the faith and confidence in me as a player to step in and make an immediate impact as a freshman." Whyte said.
Said PSA Cardinals coach Munch Williams: "Walter has proven himself to be one of the best defenders in the country when it comes to guarding guards and forwards. He will continue do just that in college. He is a proven winner and leader on the high school level. I envision him being the team captain and conference player of the year at some point in his college career. As long as he continues to take care of his body and be the person he is, he will be playing professional basketball after college for 10 plus years."
