LAUREL HILL — Lane Strickland’s basketball future looks bright.

Strickland — a Laurel Hill School post player who signed scholarship papers with Enterprise State Community College on Thursday —  said his decision came down to logistics.

“It’s close to the house and I can go to the house when I want to on a weekend if I get a break,” he said. “It’s close to home. That’s all I’ve got.”

'Great role model'

The 6-foot-5 athlete believes he brings a drive to succeed and ability to get things done to the Enterprise, Ala., college.

Stepping up in competition doesn’t faze Strickland.

“At a small school, playing people like Crestview has prepared me for bigger competition,” he said. “I know I’ve got some bigger opponents coming up.”
