One of the finest talent from Quebec has decided where he’ll end up after his high school career, class of 2010 Shooting Guard Laurent Rivard gave Harvard a verbal commitment this past tuesday.
Originally from St. Bruno in Montréal, Rivard is 6-foot-5 guard with a strong body and excellent outside shooting. He was major contributor this past summer for the Canadian junior national team coached by Greg Francis.
Rivard who attends Northfield- Mt. Hermon School (MA), choose Harvard over Bucknell, and Georgia Tech.
“I liked my visit to Georgia Tech but I opted for a place where I could get more playing time, because I think that being on the court and getting game experience is the best way to get better,” Rivard told CROWN.
“I was looking for a great academic school but most importantly a place where I could play right away and have an impact as a freshman.”
