Jake Silpe officially signs with Penn basketball
It's official: Jake Silpe is joining Penn basketball.
The high school senior point guard officially signed his letter of intent to join the Quakers next year as a major part of Penn's next recruiting class.
Silpe announced the signing via Instagram:
Silpe is one of four players so far set to join the Quakers' upcoming recruiting class along with AAU teammate and Lower Merion small forward Jule Brown, Northfield Mount Hermon (Mass.) shooting guard Jackson Donahue and Donahue's teammate, power forward Collin McManus.
Silpe officially visited Penn in October after he had already verbally committed to the Red and Blue. Here were his reasons for committing when he spoke to The Daily Pennsylvanian in September.
"What I was looking for is a school with a great basketball tradition that has high level academics," he said. "I’m looking to be a business major and you can’t get any better than the Wharton School . I was also looking for a school that’s competing to win a championship."
