New Haven HS small forward Romeo Weems, who is projected to be one of the top candidates for Michigan's Mr. Basketball next season, announced on Tuesday afternoon that he will attend DePaul University beginning in the fall of 2019.

Weems had Ohio State, Michigan State, Michigan, and Oregon as his other four finalists.  He can not officially sign with DePaul until this coming November.

Weems is ranked as the 37th best player in America, according to 247sports.com for the class of 2019.  He is rated by the same website as the number 1 player in the state of Michigan heading into next season.

He led the New Haven Rockets to the Class B semifinals this past season before losing to Grand Rapids Catholic Central at the Breslin Center in East Lansing.
