“I am SUPER excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of Rhode Island! I’d like to thank my amazing teammates and coaches at NCAP as well as my friends and family for their constant love and support. Ready to be a ram for another 4 years! #gorams
