QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -- Quincy Notre Dame's top post player this past season signed, sealed, and delivered his national letter of intent to NCAA Division III Lake Forest College on Friday.

Matt McPherson not only excels on the basketball floor but he's also a stellar student.

McPherson says the combination on and off the court at Lake Forest played a big role in his decision.

"I definitely felt comfortable on the campus. The first day I came there just hanging out with the players and coaches I felt comfortable, not only the basketball program but the academic community that was built there," McPherson said. 

"All the support they have there from the alumni, faculty, and administration was tremendous. It was the home that I dreamed of."

McPherson says he will continue to work on his frame and his post skills to prepare for his freshman season.
