CORAOPOLIS, Pa - Basketball star Kaden Divito gave Washington and Jefferson University a valentine's day gift by verbally committing to the
Presidents a few weeks after he visited the school. The 5-foot-10 standout has been a star at Cornell High School all four years of his high school years. “He is a great player to play with and constantly brings energy to the team on a daily basis,” his teammate Isaiah Langston says.
During his Junior year, DiVito was the 2018-2019 TribLiveHSSN Boys 1A basketball player of the year after averaging 26.4 points, 8.2 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game. DiVito also considered going to Waynesburg University, The University of Pittsburgh, and Slippery Rock University. He made his decision once he saw how nice and updated W&J was. DiVito will be fighting for a spot in the starting lineup at the point guard position.
This year Kaden has been efficient for his team, leading the Cornell Raiders to the WPIAL Championship. Even with the Championship loss, the Cornell Raiders are looking forward to continuing a good run in the PA state playoffs. The Raiders will play Friday vs Saltzburg at Kiski Area High School.
