Demonte Flannigan is staying home.
The Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School star committed to Cleveland State on Sunday, according to his AAU coach Michael Duncan.
Flannigan, a 6-8, 240-pound forward, chose the Vikings over offers from DePaul, Wisconsin, St. Bonaventure, Miami (Fla.), Xavier and Akron, among others.
"Every school who offered wanted me," Flannigan told the News-Herald. "The biggest difference is Coach (Gary) Waters said he needs me. He wants me to come in and be a big part of what they are doing there."
He took an official visit to CSU over the weekend.
Flannigan is rated a three-star recruit by both Rivals.com and Scout.com.
A three-time first team all-state selection, Flannigan averaged 16.5 points, 10.7 rebounds and 2.4 blocks last season.
As a sophomore, Flannigan averaged 15.8 points and 11.3 rebounds.
The Vikings have one more scholarship to offer in the class of 2013 and are looking to add a center.
