Worthem commits to Robert Morris

Math, Civics and Science High School senior Jeremiah ‘Lump’ Worthem gave an oral commitment to play basketball at Robert Morris Thursday morning.

“I love the coaching staff and I love the way that they play,” said the 6-foot-6 swingman. “I just feel very comfortable with the environment and I know some of the players up there.”

He chose Robert Morris over scholarship offers from Stony Brook, Siena Niagara, Long Island, Maryland-Baltimore County among others.

Worthem averaged 16 points, eight rebounds and three assists last season. He takes 951 career points into this upcoming season.
