St Johns College High School in Washington, DC is widely considered to be an elite private school. With a long list of prestigious alumni including Under Armour Founder and CEO, kevin Plank, St. Johns is not your run of the mill high school. We wrote earlier this year about rising 12th grader Abidel Badillo's interest in attending an elite private school and the possibility of St Johns being his first option. IPRB confirmed today Badillo is finalizing paperwork to attend St Johns in the late August. St Johns assistant coach, Coach Murphy is coming to puerto Rico in early August to spend time with Badillo and his family.
"We are also trying to place Bryan Rodriguez or Jadiel Ozuna at St Johns as well. St Johns may also have an additional spot available and we are going to try and get either Bryan or Jadiel admitted. Both of them are great players and even better students. St Johns has rigorous academic requirements and the admissions process is more difficult than most. St Johns plays in one of the top high school leagues in the country and more importantly the coaching staff does a great job of preparing them for the next level, said PR Playmakers Founder, Todd Washington.
Badillo played in this years' Jordan Classic International Game and already getting interest from several High Major Division 1 programs.
