New York City product Sidney Wilson has decided to reclassify from the class of 2017 to the class of 2018 and transfer from St. Raymond’s (NY) to Brewster Academy (NH). Brewster is one of the most prestigious prep schools throughout the country and Wilson is looking forward to continuing his high school career there.
“The decision to go to Brewster Academy and reclassify to the class of 2018 had to do with fully developing into a wing prospect and being able to make an impact on the next level,” Wilson told MADEHoops. “Coach Jason Smith at Brewster does a great job at getting guys ready for college, so I think he will prepare me for what is next.”
Reclassifying to the class of 2018 will enable Wilson to develop his skillset to where he wants it to be by the time he gets to college.
“Now being apart of the class of 2018 I will be ready to really make an impact on the college game when that time comes,” he said. “With the 2017 class I don’t think I will have enough time to fully develop my skill to where I would want it to be by the time college comes. Reclassifying to the 2018 class will allow me to grow as a player.”
Wilson enjoyed his three years at St. Raymond’s and has nothing but great things to say about them.
“I loved playing at St. Raymond’s and it will always be my home,” Wilson said. “Coach Jorge Lopez is a great guy and that’s why it is so hard to leave. It’s also hard to leave the faculty, administration and of course the student body. The whole St. Raymond’s coaching staff does such an amazing job and I’m really going to miss it there.”
With this opportunity the now class of 2018 prospect is focused on what his goals for the rest of his high school career.
“Going forward I’m just trying to become the best player I can possibly be,” said Wilson. “I want to develop my skill as much as I can before I hit the college floor. I will have gym access basically whenever I want at Brewster and I think with this new opportunity the sky is the limit.”
