Olean basketball's Bathurst verbally commits to Cornell

By Keith McShea

Olean senior Wil Bathurst told me via Twitter direct message that he has verbally committed to Cornell. 

Bathurst was a first-team All-Western New York selection as a junior last  year for the Huskies. The 6-3 multi-talented forward was part of a third straight Section VI championship before Olean's season ended with a buzzer-beating loss to Batavia in the Far West Regionals. 

I've thought Bathurst had Division I potential all along, and thought he proved it last season. He has good size and has the ability to do pretty much anything you need on the court.
