Current #14 ranked and City of London Academy Gedi Juozapaitis has signed to Woodstock Academy on a full athletic scholarship for the 2017-18 season.

The 6ft 4″ Wing was the standout player for CoLA last season in the EABL posting 16.8 PPG, 5.8 RPG and 2.6 SPG on 58.8 FG%. The athletic and versatile scorer will complete a prep year on his path to join a NCAA collegiate programme.

He is excited about the opportunity and will focus on getting his head down when arriving in the USA.

“CoLA has been a great place of development for me. All the coaching staff have taught me so much on how to be a better student, athlete and more importantly a human being. It has really put me on a successful path for life and I will always be grateful for that.”

“I’m looking forward to playing at Woodstock, competing at the highest level of High School Basketball in the States and being apart of something special that Coach Bergeron is building there. 

I’ve seen from previous UK guys going to that league, including my teammate Shaquille Walters that the potential to be recruited there is very high. For now I’m just going to go in, keep my head down and work as hard as I can and hopefully it stands me in good stead.”

We want to wish Gedi all the success at Woodstock Academy.
