Ransom Everglades’ Singer commits to California

 

a1fernandez@MiamiHerald.com

Sam Singer has put up impressive scoring numbers on the basketball court the past two seasons at Ransom Everglades.

His efforts have made him one of the highest-recruited shooting guards in the country.

Singer chose his college destination Tuesday when he committed to the University of California. Singer, a 6-5 shooting guard, is ranked No. 45 nationally among prospects at his position by ESPN.

Singer was one of the top scorers in the nation his junior season, leading Miami-Dade County among Class 4A-1A schools with a 34.1 points per game average. That ranked second overall in the county to Carol City grad and University of Miami freshman Deandre Burnett (36.2).

Singer, also a solid distributor on the court, averaged 7.7 assists per game last year and 6.2 as a sophomore. That season, he also averaged 21.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

Singer said he has more than 30 schools interested, including offers from Stanford, Richmond, Harvard and Davidson. Singer entered this school year with a 3.4 GPA.

But after two visits to Cal, Singer said he loved the combination of the school’s solid academics and athletics.

Singer hopes to lead Ransom further in the playoffs this season after the Raiders were eliminated in the district semifinals last year.

“The Pac-12 is one of the best conferences in the country to play in and I feel like California is a great school and a great fit for me,” Singer said. “Only one thing left to do my senior year.

“We didn’t do so well last year, but we’re all working hard to finish better this time.”
