Sewickley Academy basketball player Tom Droney has two more scholarship offers from big-time Division I college programs.
Droney, a junior guard, was recently offered scholarships by Notre Dame and West Virginia. Droney already had offers from Pitt and Wake Forest, and Droney is on a visit to Wake Forest this weekend.
Droney had said a few weeks ago that Pitt and Wake Forest were his top two schools and he still plans on making a decision at some point this fall. He can't sign a binding letter of intent until November of next year (his senior year). It says here that Pitt will end up being his pick.
