Greg Echenique

On Monday, Greg Echenique ended his college search choosing to stay in New Jersey and attend Rutgers University. He is rising prospect in the class of 2009 who helped St. Benedict’s (NJ) to a 24-1 record this season well averaging 11.2 points, 9.2 rebounds and 3.3 blocks per game.

Greg picked Rutgers over Duke, Penn, Maryland, Villanova, Creighton, Notre Dame and Miami. At 6’9/245 he is just what Rutgers needs to be the force on the inside. This was a huge pick-up for the program and he will be a solid player for them. I got the chance to see him play about 6 or 7 times this season and each time he impressed me more. He doesn’t try to do anything that is out of his skill set. He understands his role is to be a banger on the inside and rebound.
