Eddie McWade The two players who led the Wildwood Catholic High School boys basketball team to one of the best seasons in recent program history have made their college choices.

Jordan Robertson, a 6-4 big guard/wing forward, has accepted a full athletic scholarship offer from Division I Colgate University, while Eddie McWade, a 6-4 power forward, has earned a full athletic/academic scholarship to Division II Chestnut Hill College.

According to Wildwood Catholic athletic director Sal Zuccarello, both players are scheduled to sign National Letters of Intent on Wednesday, April 16, the first day of the NCAA’s late-signing period.

Robertson was one of South Jersey’s breakout stars this winter. Possessing the unique ability to score from all areas of the floor, Robertson averaged 18.7 points and 7.1 rebounds for a Crusader team that won the Cape-Atlantic League playoff tournament and finished 23-5 on the season. He finished his career with 1,135 points.

Colgate, located in central New York state and a member of the Patriot League, is coached by former Penn player and former Temple assistant coach Matt Langel. The Crusaders were 13-18 overall this season.

McWade was one of the top interior players in South Jersey over the past couple of seasons. Only the third player in program history to reach 1,000 career points prior to his senior year, McWade averaged 15.7 points and 10.5 rebounds this season. He was named Most Valuable Player of the Al Carino Basketball Club of South Jersey’s all-star game when he netted 17 points to go with 11 rebounds.

Chestnut Hill is a member of the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference. The Griffins were 10-17 overall this season.
