Marcellus Earlington has made a verbal commitment to play Division I college basketball in the Big East for coach Chris Mullin and Saint John’s University.  Earlington made the announcement on his Twitter page:

Earlington made the difficult decision of choosing basketball over football following his senior season on the gridiron.  Earlington is currently averaging 21.2 points per game for an Ironmen team that won the Bergen County Jamboree and is in the midst of competing for a Non-Public “A” state championship.  The 6-foot-5 forward averaged 18 points per game last season as Don Bosco reached the Tournament of Champions final.  Watch JSZ’s highlight reel of Earlington’s senior campaign:
