Guard Brandon Wade Commits to Duquesne

Guard Brandon Wade Commits to Duquesne

The Duquesne basketball program and the city of Pittsburgh made a big impression on Brandon Wade this weekend.

As you learned last week on PSN, the 2018 Michigan guard was in Pittsburgh for an official visit to Keith Dambrot’s program and tonight Wade decided to call Duquesne his new home.

This evening, Wade announced that he’s given Duquesne a verbal commitment. The talented point guard becomes Duquesne’s fourth verbal commitment for the Class of 2018 and its first guard. The expectation is that Wade will be the eventual successor to current Dukes star guard Mike Lewis.

After making his decision, Wade talked to PSN about his weekend and what made him select Duquesne tonight.

“I have grown to become really close with Coach Dambrot and his staff ever since my 9th grade year. When they moved to Duquesne, they offered me a scholarship and I was instantly interested,” said Wade.

“I visited their elite camp in the summer and got to tour the campus and facilities and it was absolutely amazing to me. As time went on, I went on my official visit there and it was everything I’ve ever wanted in a school. From the academics, to the vision for the program, and the vibe with the coaching staff and players, I knew this is what I wanted to call home.”

“I believe in what Duquesne basketball is trying to do and I want to be 100% apart of that.”

Wade (6-foot-1, 175 pounds) is from Skyline High School in Ann Arbor, Michigan and is the second recruit from Michigan that Dambrot has attracted over the last two years. In April, Duquesne signed guard Eric Williams (6-foot-5, 175 pounds) from New Haven High School in New Haven, Michigan.

Wade joins Ohio forward Austin Rotroff (6-foot-9, 205 pounds), Indiana forward Gavin Bizeau (6-foot-11, 205 pounds) and Ohio forward Dylan Swingle in Duquesne’s Class of 2018.

Wade might not be the Dukes last recruit for this year. Over the weekend, Georgia forward Amari Kelly made an official visit and is a possibility to join Duquesne.
