PTT-Blue's Giovanni Rubino recently committed to Muhlenberg College, out of the highly competitive Centennial Conference.
Following a solid senior high school campaign, Giovanni decided on a prep year at Cheshire Academy, and under the leadership of former NCAA Division I coach, Jim McCarthy.
Throughout the 2019-2020 season, Giovanni proved to be a pivotal piece for Coach McCarthy and a Cheshire Academy squad that went from two wins during the 2018-2019 season to 14 wins along with a NEPSAC AA playoff berth this year.
"Giovanni is a very skilled and savvy point guard; he's an efficient shooter and scorer with a great feel for the game," Cheshire Academy Head Coach, Jim McCarthy, told the New England Recruiting Report. "He sees the floor incredibly well and knows how to make the right basketball play."
PTT founding coach, Drew Dawson, agreed with Coach McCarthy's assessment.
"Giovanni has done a heck-of-a job making the most of his opportunities," said Coach Dawson. "After flying under the radar for some time, Giovanni left his mark on our club program while establishing himself as an excellent prospect...Coach Hopkins is getting a kid who's skilled, can make a play for himself and others and, overall, has a great feel for the game."
With time and added strength, Giovanni is poised to have an outstanding college career, and we couldn't be happier for Gio's accomplishments, #ObsessProcess.
Giovanni Rubino on PTT: "In my personal journey, I wouldn't be where I am today without Project Triple Threat. Coach Dawson and the whole staff went out of their way to push me on and off the court while giving me a platform to perform against top competition. I'm extremely grateful to have found a program like PTT."
Note: Giovanni joins fellow Project Triple Threat (PTT) standout, Justin Allen, who's a rising sophomore at Muhlenberg and marked an impressive freshmen year, averaging 8.3 ppg and 5 rpg for the Mules.
