St. Thomas Aquinas senior guard Lenny Ricca verbally committed to Division II Flagler College after visiting the St. Augustine program in January.
This week, however, Ricca decided instead to accept a preferred walk-on offer from Division I Florida Gulf Coast University.
“It’s really exciting to be headed to FGCU next year,” Ricca said Thursday. “Playing Division I basketball has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember, and FGCU was the program that was willing to give me a shot.”
The 6-foot-2 Ricca showed excellent vision and had a good assist-to-turnover ratio as a senior. He averaged in double-digits but drew praise from former St. Thomas Aquinas coach Steve Strand
