Hilton Head Island High School sophomore golfer Andrew Orischak has verbally committed to play collegiate golf at the University of Virginia. Orischak, 15, is currently ranked No. 2 in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings for the Class of 2015.
He also received offers from Texas, Georgia Tech, Georgia, South Carolina, Clemson, Auburn, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Wake Forest. He visited each of the aforementioned schools except for Texas, North Carolina State and Wake Forest but decided to go with the Cavaliers for both academic and athletic reasons.
“Someone once told me that deciding where you want to go to school is like spotting a girl, once you see her you’ll know,” Orischak told Golfweek. “I knew Virginia was the place for me once I went up there. It gives me a chance to be outstanding from an academic standpoint and from an athletic standpoint.”
