New Hampton's Auguste picks Notre Dame
ESPN.com has confirmed that New Hampton (N.H.) power forward Zach Auguste has given Notre Dame a verbal commitment for the 2012-13 season.
Late last month, the 6-foot-9 Marlborough native gave ESPN's Adam Finkelstein a final four of Florida, Georgia Tech, Marquette and West Virginia, but added, "I'm leaving the fifth spot open just in case I get any new options". He was scheduled to take an official visit to West Virginia next weekend, and Georgia Tech the weekend of October 6.
Auguste will join freshman Pat Connaughton, an ESPNBoston All-Stater and ESPNU 100 guard last season for St. John's Prep, among the Massachusetts residents when he arrives in South Bend next fall.
