Fordham received its 2nd commitment from the Class of 2018 on Sunday, as Pasadena, California native Chris Austin decided on the Rams. At 6-4, 180 pounds, Austin becomes the 2nd guard from the Class of 2018 to commit to Fordham along with point guard Nick Honor. According to Max Preps, Austin averaged 17.0 points and 5.3 rebounds per contest as a junior for his high school team. He’ll help replenish a backcourt that will lose Will Tavares and Perris Hicks to graduation after the 2017-18 season.
