Notre Dame-West Haven senior guard Tremont Waters will announce on Wednesday afternoon which of the seven Division I colleges he will play basketball at beginning in the fall of 2017.
Waters, a New Haven resident, will make that decision at 4 p.m. the Farnam House in New Haven, where he grew up playing. The seven schools in the running are: Duke, Kentucky, Indiana, UConn, Georgetown, Kansas and Yale.
When reached by phone Tuesday afternoon, Ed Waters, Tremont’s father, said the list has been reduced to four, but wouldn’t say which four. He said the family would discuss it further Tuesday evening.
“I now can see why people take so long to make a decision. They want to be 110 percent sure,” Ed Waters said. “This is a commitment you have to live with for 40 years.”
Waters confirmed that Kentucky coach John Calipari “was here three times”, Kansas coach Bill self once, Georgetown coach John Thompson III twice, but not UConn coach Kevin Ollie. He also said Indiana sent an assistant. Waters said he gets calls from various people interested in his son’s decision “between four to seven times a day.”
Tremont Waters transferred from South Kent prep school to Notre Dame-West Haven in August.
Ed Waters said the family chose Farnam House for Wednesday’s announcement because “Tremont literally started at Farnam. Home is Farnam if we say basketball. … We did this to bring excitement back to New Haven.”
Tremont Waters’ commitment Wednesday will be a verbal one. He cannot sign a national letter of intent until November.
