The Loyola men’s basketball team landed its first commitment from the class of 2019 Sunday afternoon. Paxson Wojcik, a three-star guard from La Lumiere School in LaPorte, Indiana, announced his commitment to Loyola on Twitter. Wojcik is Loyola’s first commitment from the class of 2019.
“I’m really excited,” Wojcik told The Phoenix in a phone interview. “I’ve got a great relationship with the whole staff, I know the team pretty well and I can’t wait to hit the ground running and win some more championship rings at Loyola.”
Wojcik, a 6-foot-4-inch guard, is set to start his senior season at La Lumiere next year. La Lumiere also produced center Franklin Agunanne, an incoming first-year at Loyola. Wojcik also held offers from five other schools, including DePaul University and Illinois State University.
Wojcik’s listed as a three-star recruit on 247Sports.com. He said he took an unofficial visit to Loyola June 22 and fell in love with the campus. After talking to his family over the weekend, he decided to commit.
“It’s been crazy. I had a great visit and … I knew I wanted to be a part of this program,” Wojcik said. “It’s been a crazy past couple days talking with family, really talking it over. Right now, my mind’s all over the place, but I’d say the one feeling of constant is I’m excited. I couldn’t be more excited.”
Per NCAA rules, Loyola head coach Porter Moser can’t comment until the National Letter of Intent signing period begins in November.
