Former Andover High School 1,000-point scorer Joe Bramanti has committed to play basketball at Wright State University in Ohio.
Bramanti also had offers from Wofford, Jacksonville, Stonehill, The Citadel, and Ryder, but chose to become a Wright State Raider and play in the Horizon League.
After graduating from AHS in 2011, Bramanti became a fifth-year senior at Brewster Academy and played alongside all-star talents such as JaKarr Sampson and Mitch McGary. The Brewster Bobcats went 33-1 with Bramanti starting at point guard and won the National Prep Championship.
Bramanti may have scored 1,084 points in his career at Andover High School, but it was his tenacious defense and ability to control the basketball that earned him national recognition and a Division I scholarship. During his time at Brewster, Bramanti had to cover some of the most talented guards in the country.
When asked by the Dayton Daily News why he chose to become a Raider, Bramanti said, “I pretty much liked everything about Wright State. The situation was perfect for me. It being far away from home was the only drawback I saw. Athletically, it’s a great spot. The facilities are amazing. All the coaches I love, and all the players I love, so it was a perfect spot for me.”
