South Florida has landed a commitment from Andres Feliz, one of the stars of the recent U19 World Championships. He will enroll at the university for the 2016-17 season.
“I have decided to commit to coach Orlando Antigua and the University of South Florida. Go bulls!!!” Feliz tweeted.
Feliz was the leading scorer in the U19 tournament, averaging 18.9 points and 3.7 assists in seven games. The Dominican Republic team he played for finished 3-4 in those seven games, and Feliz was coached on that team by Oliver Antigua, an assistant coach for South Florida and the younger brother of USF head coach Orlando Antigua.
Feliz goes to high school at West Oaks Academy and plays his AAU ball for Team Breakdown of the Under Armor Association.
South Florida now has two commitments in the Class of 2016, as Feliz joins three-star small forward Troy Baxter, another member of Team Breakdown.
