Capital Prep’s Desiree Elmore, a 5-foot-11 Register all-state junior forward/center who helped the Trailblazers to back-to-back state championships, has committed to play basketball at Syracuse, her father Leon confirmed to reporter Henry Chisholm.
Elmore averaged 18.3 points, 11.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 3.9 steals and 2.3 blocks per game for Capital Prep, which was voted No. 1 in the final 2013-14 GameTimeCT / New Haven Register poll.
She is the second Capital Prep player to receive a Division I college basketball scholarship. Teammate Kiah Gillespie committed to Maryland earlier this year.
