Millinghaus: 'I had to think about my future'

---Derrick Millinghaus, who recently announced he de-committed from St. Bonaventure said the reason behind his decision was that he had to think about his future.

"It would of been nice going to St. Bonnies but I had to think about my future,'' he said via a Facebook message on Monday night.

Millinghaus, who signed with the Bonnies during the early signing period last November, didn't elaborate but perhaps he wanted to follow the same path as Eli Carter, to de-committed from the Bonnies last year to attend Brewster (NH) Academy and is now being recruited by the likes of Gonzaga, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, South Florida, Iowa and Oregon State.

A source said St. Bonaventure coach Mark Schmidt attended a high school showcase last weekend in New Jersey in which Millinghaus was scheduled to partipate but Millinghaus didn't attend.

Whatever the reason, it is yet another blow for the Bonnies, who return four starters from last year's 16-15 team, including All-American candidate Andrew Nicholson.
