Imhotep Charter senior Miguel Bocachica made an oral commitment yesterday to play basketball at Long Island University.

The 6-foot-6 swingman chose the Blackbirds over Hartford, Quinnipiac, Fairfield, St. Peter's and Morgan State.

"It just felt right," Bocachica said about accepting the full-scholarship offer. "I think I will go there and get playing time right away."

The 17-year-old, who transferred from George Washington over the summer, is averaging about 10 points for Imhotep. He was an all-Public League selection last season at Washington.
