Fans of men’s basketball might want to know that

Richard Martin, a 6-3 guard/forward who [was] first team All-Dade and second team All-State, committed to play for Williams College of Massachusetts. Williams was the 2003 Division III national champion and a runner-up in 2004.

Presumably, to be second team All-State in Florida, you need to know what you are doing. No word on whether or not Martin was a tip.

I never thought that I would read an applicant’s decision to attend Williams described as “committed to play.” No word yet on whether or not Martin also “committed” to taking classes or reading books.

Joking aside, I have a great deal of faith that Basketball Coach Dave Paulsen ’87 will ensure that Martin does more than just play basketball for four years.
