Lower Merion's Yohanny Dalembert, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound senior forward, has committed to play basketball at James Madison.
The half-brother of former Sixers center Samuel Dalembert also considered Drexel, Niagara, and Wagner. Memphis, Temple, and Villanova showed varying degrees of interest.
Last season while helping Lower Merion to a 30-3 record and the PIAA Class AAAA state championship, Dalembert averaged 11.3 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 4.1 blocks. He was an Inquirer second-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania selection. - Rick O'Brien
