Today, 6-1, 180-pound point guard recruit Sam Zeglinski will sign a letter of intent with the University of Virginia. After being committed to the program for over a year, the Penn Charter (Philadelphia, PA) star is certainly happy to “officially” be a part of the program.

“It is real exciting. I’m finally signing after being committed for a year,” Zeglinski said.

In Zeglinski, Virginia will be getting a first-team all-league and second-team all-state performer as a junior. He averaged 19 points, five assists and three steals per game as a junior last season.

Zeglinski, who has scored over 1,000 points in his three-year Penn Charter career, prides himself in “doing whatever the team asks me to do,” he says. “I play the role the team needs me to play. I think Virginia wants me to be a pure point guard, but I think I can come in there and do a little bit of everything.”

A second-team all-city performer as well, Zeglinski has also shown a winning work ethic on and off the court. He has worked hard in the weight room since the beginning of his junior season and has added 10 pounds of muscle.

“Being stronger has helped me get to the basket easier and take the hits from those big guys,” Zeglinski said. “It has also helped me improve in defense. I think defense is the area I’m most improved in heading into this year.”

Since he committed to Virginia last September, Zeglinski has been to Charlottesville a number of times. He says he has been able to develop solid relationships with players and coaches alike, something that has helped keep solid in his commitment (he did receive light overtures from other coaches this summer, but reiterated to them that he was solid to Virginia.).

“Everybody is just real friendly whenever I’ve been down there,” Zeglinski said. “And the team is definitely going in the right direction. They have great players
