Chicago Colleges: Farragut

Daytona State College (Fla.) sophomore forward Rashaun Stimage, a Chicago native, has committed to DePaul. Stimage will play at Daytona State in 2013-14 before joining the Blue Demons in 2014-15.

Stimage, a 6-foot-8, 215-pound forward, starred at Farragut Academy in Chicago’s Public League. He attended Blinn College in Texas as a freshman and averaged 15 points and 7.9 rebounds in 15 games. He was an all-area selection as a high school senior and averaged 20 points, 13 rebounds and five blocks for the Admirals.

“This was the best fit for him,” Farragut coach Wolf Nelson said. “I don’t care who else was looking at him. This was the best situation for him.

“He’s the most versatile player I’ve had since Kevin Garnett. He can run the floor; he can shoot; he can pass; he can block shots; he can rebound. I think he brings a lot with him to a team.”
