Regis' Wampler verbally commits to play basketball at Drake

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. -- Today, Eau Claire Regis senior Billy Wampler, verbally committed to play basketball at Drake University in Des Moines, IA.

The college basketball world took notice as Wampler averaged 25 points a game including a 48 point performance against Stanley-Boyd.

Wampler says this about his decision, "We were kind of narrowing down our choices. I had 18 scholarship offers from schools around the country, and we were trying to find the right fit for me and we narrowed our list down to three visits, which was, Drake, Davidson, and the University of Auburn. We decided on our visit at Drake that Drake was a good fit for us, and their business school is top in the country, and I just felt really comfortable. Coach Ray Giacoletti was probably the most honest coach to me throughout the whole entire recruiting process, so it was kind of a no brainer once I got down there and saw all the big things that are happening down there."
