Per his twitter page, 2019 forward Calvin Felder will be announcing his college decision “this week.” His final five is Murray State, VPI, LSU, Georgia Tech and Boston College.
Felder, a 6’7 185lb power forward from Sumter SC, is currently ranked 187th in the nation and the #5 player in South Carolina.
I am told that Felder has not officially visited either LSU or Georgia Tech so I would assume that neither will be receiving the commitment. I know for sure he recently visited Virginia Tech. He apparently visited Murray State before that and was reportedly going to visit Boston College this past weekend. LSU was scheduled to be this upcoming weekend. This is according to Prep Hoops’ Justin Byerly.
Felder an undersized post, but has plenty of athleticism to make up for his lack of height. He is a rim punishing big who runs the floor very well and finishes with authority. Please excuse the music on the video. It was the best highlight reel available, but the music is NSFW.
I think his game best fits at Murray State, but I am going to go out on a limb and say it’s going to be Boston College. I don’t think you shun Will Wade a week before going to Baton Rouge unless your most recent visit blew you away. Of course, that is just me speculating. WTF do I know? We will find out in a few days.
