St. Rita point guard Armani Chaney made an oral commitment to Tennessee State Monday.

Most high school hoops fans will remember Chaney as the tiny, 5-7 rock solid point guard for the Mustangs. He’s a lot more than that now.

“I finally grew,” Chaney said. “I’m 5-11 now. The growth just came lately, so most of the colleges don’t know about it.”

Chaney made a visit to Tennessee State last weekend.

“It was just mostly the family atmosphere,” said Chaney. “It was just fun, the players were cool, it reminded me of St. Rita and how close we are.”

Chaney was also considering Northern Colorado, Cleveland State, South Dakota, South Dakota State. There’s a chance some bigger names would have been involved if they were informed of Chaney’s growth spurt.

“(Tennessee State) was recruiting me I was smaller,” Chaney said. “They are the coaches I’m comfortable with, it just felt homey.”

The Mustangs are poised to be one of the top teams in the state this season. Senior guard Charles Matthews has committed to Kentucky. Kain Harris, a transfer from Morgan Park, and Myles Carter are also expected to be Division I recruits.

“He is a dynamic point guard and when it is all said and done this year a lot of people are going to say he’s one of the best point guards in the state,” said St. Rita coach Gary DeCesare.
