NEPA Elite Coyle 17U forward Christian Fermin picked up his second Atlantic 10 scholarship offer of the week when he received one from LaSalle University in Philadelphia Friday.
Fermin a 6-foot-8 rising junior from Pocono Mountain West, received an offer from St. Bonaventure earlier in the week.
The latest developments give Fermin a total of four National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I offers, including from Hofstra and Central Connecticut State. He also has an offer from Division II Lincoln University.
Fermins leads in rebounds and blocked shots on a Coyle team that has won six of its last seven games.
Fermin was Pocono Mountain West’s only all-star during his sophomore season, receiving honorable mention when the East Penn Conference made its selections.
LaSalle went 15-15, including 6-12 in the Atlantic 10, during the 2019-20 season.
