CHATHAM — It didn’t take too long for the first member of the Hargrave Military Academy post graduate basketball team to make a college decision. Though Hargrave players reported to campus a little more than a month ago, forward Rashard Kelly has announced he will be attending Wichita State University next fall.
Kelly, who entertained offers from schools such as Boston College, George Washington, Marshall, and Xavier in addition to Wichita State, says that he felt at home almost as soon as he set foot on campus of the mid-sized, Kansas school. Kelly says it was the warm welcome he got from students and members of seventh-year coach Gregg Marshal’s coaching staff was a major factor into his decision.
