One lucky prep school’s boys’ basketball team is about to get a major upgrade to its backcourt.

Christ the King (Middle Village, N.Y.) wing Rawle Alkins announced via Twitter Thursday night that he would indeed be transferring from the New York City powerhouse for his upcoming senior season.

In March, Alkins, who is ranked No. 22 overall in the ESPN 100, scored 21 points to help Christ the King knockoff Xaverian, 59-56, completing the CHSAA three-peat in the process. Christ the King became the first school to three-peat since 1982 in the CHSAA.

Last month, after dominating the adidas Gauntlet averaging 24.3 points per game this summer, Alkins averaged 10.3 points per game to help the U.S. Select team to a 3-0 record at the 2015 adidas EuroCamp in Treviso, Italy.

Next up for Alkins is the adidas Finals July 8-11 in Atlanta where he’ll suit up for the NY Rens.
