ELIZABETH, N.J. – Bryce Aiken admitted that it was a difficult decision for him; but when push came to shove the Patrick School standout ended up committing to Harvard.

Aiken, a 4-star point guard, is 5-foot-9, 150 pounds and he’s a big-time commitment for the Crimson. According to the industry generated 247Sports Composite, he’s the No. 20 point guard in the 2016 class. 247Sports also considers him to be the No. 145 player in the Top247. Aiken’s offer list features notable programs such as Rutgers, Florida State, Creighton, Seton Hall and Miami, but according to Evan Daniels of Scout.com, the decision came down to Harvard, Miami and Seton Hall.

The decision came in the form of a two-part announcement on Twitter:

Harvard and head coach Tommy Amaker currently have a very impressive class now that Aiken has joined the fray.

Now that the 4-star point guard has committed, the Crimson’s 2016 class features five commitments—two which are four stars, per the 247Sports Composite. Aiken is one of the 4-stars, but he joins power forward Chris Lewis from Alpharetta, Georia. Lewis committed to Harvard over offers from Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Memphis, Miami and Georgia Tech; so without a doubt Amaker and his staff have to be feeling good now that they’ve added another 4-star recruit with an impressive offer list.

Robert Baker, 3-star power forward, 3-star small forward Seth Towns and 2-star point guard Christian Juzang are all also committed to Harvard’s 2016 class.

You can watch Aiken’s mixtape below:

Just from one quick look at it, it’s rather clear that he has the talent to back up his 4-star ranking. Aiken has good ball-handling skills, a smooth shot and a quick release. He’ll have the ability to drive the lane and make plays for Harvard as a passer or scorer, but can also create his own shot thanks to a pretty smooth “stop-and-pop” jumper.

Aiken will be able to make teams pay from behind the three-point line, but he’ll undoubtedly make a big impact for Harvard because of his ability to drive and dish as well.
All-in-all, he projects to be a very complete college point guard.
