The future is already beginning to take shape for Penn State’s basketball program.
Myles Dread, a Class of 2018 small forward from Gonzaga High School (Washington, DC), announced his commitment via Twitter on Sunday.
“First, I would like to thank God for all of my success in basketball and in my life,” Dread wrote in a note. “Secondly, I would like to thank my mother and father for being my biggest fans on and off the court for as long as I’ve been alive. I would like to thank Kelvin Johnson, Keith Stevens, Steve Turner, and Doug Martin for helping me to not only be a better basketball player, but to be a better man. Without those men the Myles Dread would not be the Myles Dread you know today. After a long conversation with my family and coaches; we’ve decided that Penn State is the best fit for me. Coach (Pat) Chambers has set high expectations for me on the floor and in the classroom as well as turning me into the man I want to become. Thank you to everyone who believed in me. I’m glad to be apart (sic) of the family!!!”
The 6-foot-4, 205-pound small forward is Penn State’s first commitment for the Class of 2018.
