BERLIN- After an intense recruiting period during which he was courted by around a dozen Division I programs, Decatur’s standout rising senior center Keve Aluma announced last weekend he has committed to Wofford College in South Carolina.
Aluma, a 6’8” senior at Decatur, was heavily recruited throughout the summer by several Division I schools before announcing his decision via Twitter last Saturday to commit to Wofford College. Aluma announced the decision after working out last week at Decatur in front of scouts from a handful of programs considered to be finalists including Loyola of Maryland, UMES, UMass-Lowell and Wofford.
Aluma was the center on Decatur’s deep and talented 2015-2016 team that reached the state 3A championship game last season after a wild run through the regional and state playoffs. The Seahawks ultimately fell to C.M. Wright, 51-49, in overtime in the state championship game. Aluma was named First Team-All Bayside Conference after a standout junior season. Surrounded by a deep and talented team, Aluma and the Seahawks have some unfinished business entering the upcoming season as they attempt to return to the state title game.
Next season, Aluma will take his game to Wofford College in Spartansburg, S.C. The Division I Terriers play in the Southern Conference and have been a recent regular entrant in the NCAA men’s Division I basketball championship tournament. Wofford reached the NCAA tournament in 2010, 2011, 2014 and 2015.
