This past weekend, only a month after getting his first Division I scholarship offer, Worcester Academy post grad Matt Mobley verbally committed to Central Connecticut State University during an official visit.
"It just happened," said Mobley on his commitment. "I love the coaching staff and the direction the team is going. I feel I can fit right in."
Mobley graduated from St. Peter Marian this spring after an impressive four-year career. Although, after four years, Towson was the only Division I school interested in the 6-foot-2 combo guard.
Mobley made the decision to go to prep school in order to gain more exposure. However, that exposure came early after a big summer on the AAU circuit.
The Worcester native picked up interest playing with Blackstone Valley Chaos and then later Bay State Flash.
By the end of the summer Mobley had Towson, New Hampshire, Long Island-Brooklyn, Holy Cross, and Loyola Marymount interested in him. But his first offer came from Central Connecticut back on Aug. 1.
"I'm a combo guard, I could play the one or the two," said Mobley. "They said they would even put me at the three if we go small."
Mobley has yet to play a game for Worcester Academy and has already planned his future.
"I have no pressure anymore," said Mobley about his post grad season. "This way I can just go out and play basketball."
