Ace Baldwin made big recruiting news this past weekend when he decided to verbally commit to VCU. The St. Frances Academy (MD) and Team Durant standout is a huge commitment for the Rams and should be an immediate contributor when he gets there next year. He spoke to HG Insider about his commitment.

Q: Why you did you decide on VCU?

A: “I decided VCU because me and my parents thought it was a great fit. They have a good education, a lot of majors I can pick from and they have all the resources I need. Another thing was that it was a home away from home. Its bigger then basketball to them and they really care. My family just loved it, VCU made us happy.”

Q: What schools were you down to?

A: “My final schools were VCU, Seton Hall, Georgetown, Maryland and Clemson.”

Q: What did they say your role would be there?

A: “They said my role will be a starting point guard playing twenty plus minutes. I just have to go get it and take what’s mine.”

Q: What goals do you have for when you get there?

A: “My goal is to lead my team to an A-10 championship and to play and win in the NCAA tournament.”

Q: Why was now the best time to decide for you?

A: “This was the best time because they showed me I was ready to become a Ram. AAU and high school senior year go by fast and me and my parents thought it was time.”
