But for Ofori-Attah, choosing to play for NCAA Division I program William & Mary came pretty easy.
"First of all, they have a good academic program," Ofori-Attah said."And from the basketball standpoint, they're in a pretty good situation -- they've got a real good coach ... and they've got enough competition so I can get better and play at the highest level."
Ofori-Attah made a verbal commitment with the Williamsburg, Va., college on Wednesday night, and is expected to sign the official letter of intent "within the next day or so," according to Statesville Christian boys basketball coach John Jordan.
Ofori-Attah, 19, had narrowed his choices down to three schools -- William & Mary, LaSalle and South Carolina -- before leaning towards the Tribe, which plays in the Colonial Athletic Association.
According to recruiting Web site, Ofori-Attah had also received some interest from at least a dozen other Division I programs: Arkansas, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Clemson, Creighton, Davidson, DePaul, East Carolina, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Providence and Vanderbilt.
"The other choices had good basketball programs," said Ofori-Attah, who made official recruiting visits to William & Mary, LaSalle, Minnesota and East Carolina."But I also looked at the personalities of the coaches, how bad they wanted me and just what I could do for their program.I just liked the fact that at William & Mary, I could have a big impact."
At William & Mary, Ofori-Attah joins a program rebuilding under head coach Tony Shaver, who recently completed his first season with the Tribe after spending 17 years at Division III Hampden-Sydney.
Ofori-Attah could make an immediate impact with William & Mary.
That factor -- almost-immediate playing time -- was part of what swung Ofori-Attah towards choosing William & Mary.
"This was a good spot for me to step in and play right away," he said."The other offers I had, it wasn't sure if I could do that.I didn't want to sit on the bench for two years.
"With the freshmen they've recruited, (Williams & Mary has) got a pretty good chance to be a real good team over the next four years."
Ofori-Attah, a native of Berlin, Germany, transferred to Statesville Christian from prep basketball powerhouse Montrose Christian Academy in Rockville, Md., during the summer.He was one of four transfers (two of those foreign exchange students) to join Jordan in his first year as the Lions' head coach, but he made the most impact.
The 6-4 guard averaged 29.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game in leading Statesville Christian to a 17-9 record and the quarterfinals of the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association's (NCISAA) 1A division boys basketball tournament.
Along the way, Ofori-Attah broke the state high school single-game scoring record when he pumped in 71 points against Hickory Grove Christian in December 2003.He was also voted the South Piedmont Athletic Association's player of the year, and was named to the NCISAA's 1A all-state team.
