John Decker had originally hoped to commit to Pace, but the university fired coach Jim Harter in March after 16 seasons. That opened up the recruiting chase for the Somers senior guard, who led Section 1 in scoring during the regular season and averaged 25.7 PPG.
The 6-foot Decker received renewed interest from several schools. His narrowed the list to finalists last week and decided today that he would attend Dominican.
Ultimately, Decker chose Dominican over Cortland. He had also considered Manhattanville and went on a visit earlier this month to the College of St. Rose.
Decker also earned all-section honors as the quarterback for the Somers football team last fall. He threw for over 1,000 yards and helped the Tuskers win the Section 1 Class A championship.
