Nolan Long a 6’10 center who attends South Kent School (CT) is off the board to Wagner.
Long, who was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the 2012 MLB draft opted to enter a post graduate year at South Kent in hopes of earning a scholarship to ply both basketball and baseball in college. Long a native of New London, CT throws a 90mph fast ball on the mound and brings the hammer down on the hardwood.
Long turned down a baseball scholarship to URI out of high school but knew time to make the right college choice would eventually come. Long will get his chance to play both sports at Wagner we’re he’ll team up with current Marinapolis Prep (CT) front court player Greg Senat who gave a commitment to Wagner in the fall.
Long will look to pursue a baseball career when his basketball one is done.
