The class of 2016 has already had a few surprise commitments and another one came at the end of last week with Goshen College and head coach Neal Young picking up a big commitment from Leo (IN) forward Dylan Barrow.
The 6'8 stretch forward had a pair of offers to choose from with a few other schools watching closely. Barrow chose Goshen over Hillsdale College in Michigan.
“The coaching staff, the players, and the campus just won me over,” Barrow said of Goshen. “Coach Young is building something I want to be a part of.”
For Goshen, this is a commitment that can be an impact guy sooner rather than later. His versatility as a forward is solid as he can shoot and move around the perimeter very well for his size. However, he's just as capable a player in the post. With a frame that will take more weight, Dylan should continue to grow through the next few years.
“I hope I can bring some versatility to the offense,” Dylan said. “Off the court I look forward to getting a great education and growing with the other guys.”
This is the first commitment for Goshen College in this class. This is the fourth commitment for a Crossroads League member with Jaret Sons (Grace), Braxton Linville (Grace), and Mason Degenkolb (Taylor) having already made commitments in the recent weeks.
