London baller Teddy Okereafor has signed a letter of intent to join Virginia Commonwealth University – who reached this season's NCAA Final Four.

The 6' 3" former England Under 18 point guard is making the move after becoming one of the best players in Virginia high school basketball. Indeed, just last month, he led his Christchurch School to the state semi-finals.

Rams head coach Shaka Smart is excited about the signing.

"The addition of Teddy is huge news to our program and vital to our future," he said. "His biggest asset is making his teammates better, which is a trait that all winning players share.

"Teddy brings a tremendous basketball IQ to the game and plays with a terrific understanding of pace."

Okereafor was named Virginia Prep League Player of the Year and First-Team All-State after pouring in 13.1 points per game and dishing out 7.2 assists per game for the Seahorses. He led his school to a 23-6 overall mark and perfect 14-0 in the Virginia Prep League.

Off the court, Okereafor's academics have been just a strong as his game – he has a 3.5 grade point average. He plans to major in business at VCU.
