Granby’s Antwan Epps Jr. announced Friday that he will be leaving Granby for Bishop Sullivan this upcoming school year.
Epps made the announcement via Twitter by thanking the coaching staff and his friends, and stating that he will be making the change of schools.
The rising junior felt it was the best move for him, but it wasn’t an easy decision.
“Granby is a great school full of great people, but it’s all about what’s best for my career,” Epps said. “I was told that it was going to be very challenging, but I’m up for the challenge. I am looking forward to leading what is going to be one of the best teams in the state.”
Epps has already started to establish a connection with his new coaches and teammates.
“My first day at practice was when I started to connect with all them and now it already feels like home,” he said.
He considered several schools during the process, but ultimately he decided that Bishop Sullivan provided the most opportunity for him.
“One thing about Bishop Sullivan is that the work definitely prepares you for the college life,” Epps said. “For basketball purposes, I believe it’s a better chance for me to get better and pick up a lot more on my recruitment, especially against the teams that we have on our schedule this year.”
The 2019 guard currently has offers from Hampton University, Georgia Southwestern, and Southern University. He said that schools such as South Carolina, South Carolina State, Princeton, Norfolk State, and UMES among others have been showing strong interest in him.
Epps explained that this summer has been a great one for him as it allowed him to grow as a player.
“I’ve been working on becoming more of a pass-first point guard and a better vocal leader,” Epps said. “I continue to work on every part of my game no matter how good I think I am on that part of my game.”
Epps stated that he’s looking forward to this new change and that he’s ready for the upcoming challenge this season.
