Baltimore wing headed to MAAC

The Baltimore Sun reported on Sunday that Mount St. Joseph small forward Phillip Lawrence has verbally committed to Marist.

Lawrence chose the Red Foxes over Jacksonville, Loyola, Radford, Rider and Siena.

"It feels great," he told the paper. "Everybody's congratulating me and I feel like I did it. I had a good summer and it paid off. Playing for Philly's Finest really paid off."

He is the second recruit for Marist in 2012 along with center Eric Truog (Chagrin Falls, Ohio).
