Don Bosco’s Myles Ruth had his home of New Jersey in mind when making the biggest decision of his life.

Ruth, a Class of 2020 point guard, announced Saturday evening he was verbally committing to play at Monmouth University.

Ruth was one of Bergen County’s best players in New Jersey’s 2019-2020 campaign. He averaged 13 points, 4.7 assists and 2.8 steals for the Ironmen during his senior season while leading Don Bosco to a 19-8 record. Ruth spoke with JSZ’s Jay Cook hours after the announcement and broke down his decision with us.
