Ryan Rhoomes to Fordham

Ryan Rhoomes is headed to Fordham.

The 6-foot-9, 237-pound former TCU commit pledged to the Rams on Friday.

“I just chose them because everything felt right,” Rhoomes told SNY.tv. “It’s close to home and I feel they can develop my game.”

Rhoomes was recruited by assistant coach David Duke as well as head coach Tom Pecora.

“I think it might be a nice fit,” Cardozo coach Ron Naclerio said. “He visited the other day, he liked it. David played for me at Cardozo and he always works hard with Cardozo players.”

Naclerio said St. John’s, Rhode Island, Hofstra, Temple, Iona and Seton Hall also called on Rhoomes.

Rhoomes is taking three online courses to qualify and Naclerio said he has finished up two of them and is still working on his math class.

“It’s good for the kid and it’s for Cardozo basketball,” Naclerio said. “It’s another kid that we placed.”
