And many players in the New York City area have been successful at Albany too, including talented guard Tim Ambrose, who played at Our Savior New American in Centereach, New York.
Stukes, who played 31 of the 40 minutes in the Jordan regional game last April, recorded 24 points, grabbed five rebounds, and had two assists. His effort helped the City team defeat the Suburban team, 129-120.
"I wanted to go to a place where I could play and have an impact," Stukes said. "So I'm glad and now I can just focus on getting better."
Stukes will play at South Kent School in Connecticut next year. So it'll be in 2010-2011 when Stukes is a freshman at Albany. "I'm just looking to improve everything in my game this summer," he said.
Stukes had also heard from Long Island University.
