Tramell Weathersby is bound for Texas.
The four-year varsity player for coach Wendell Jeffries at East Aurora High School has signed to play basketball next year at Lee College, a Division I junior college just outside Houston.
"Two weekends ago they flew him down (to Baytown, Texas) for a visit," said Jeffries. "One of their assistant coaches, Marcus King, attended our Christmas Tournament and saw Tramell play and he's kept in touch."
The 6-foot-4 Weathersby started at center as a freshman for Jeffries on a team that made it to the sectional final. He played forward this past season, averaging 14 points and 6.1 rebounds to earn all-Upstate Eight Conference and Beacon News All-Area second team honors.
Lee head coach plans to play Weathersby on the wing or at shooting guard, Jeffries said.
Weathersby also had an offer to play at Parkland Junior College in Champaign.
He was just the fourth of five freshmen to ever play on the varsity at East High, preceded by Thomas Wyatt, Aaron McGhee and Tarius Dawkins and followed by Ryan Boatright.
