St. Thomas Aquinas senior basketball player Sidney Umude has verbally committed to Youngstown State and will sign with the Horizon League school next week, St. Thomas coach Steve Strand said.
Umude, a 6-foot-7, 210-pound forward who averaged 11 points and 6 rebounds for the Raiders last season, is a three-star recruit.
He played for AAU national champion team Each 1 Teach 1 this past spring and summer. He is rated the nation's 56th best power forward by ESPN.com and the 33rd best senior prospect in Florida by Florida Hoops.
