Bishop Eustace guard commits to Stony Brook


Bishop Eustace senior point guard Carson Puriefoy III gave an oral commitment Monday to play basketball at Stony Brook University.

In the end, the 6-foot, 165-pounder chose the Seawolves over Vermont and Princeton.

“The academics were strong and that’s real important to us,” Carson Puriefoy Jr. said of this son’s decision. “He’s thinking about law school. And we spoke to some folks up there about that.

“We really got a good feel for the opportunities after school for him.”

An added attraction, Puriefoy Jr. said, was his son having an opportunity to start as a freshman.

Puriefoy took an official visit to Stony Brook this past weekend with his parents. He made his decision on Sunday. But after his father told him to sleep on it, he called Stony Brook coaches Monday morning to make his announcement.

The 17-year-old was a first-team all-South Jersey selection last season by The Inquirer.

He averaged 21.4 points and set South Jersey’s single-game high for the season with 42 against  Woodrow Wilson.
