Bruno Fernando, who committed to SMU in April, has decided to decommit and reclassify into the Class of 2017.

The 6-10 Fernando, ranked No. 49 in the USA TODAY Sports final composite rankings, will return to Montverde Academy in Florida to play for the post-grad team, Eagles coach Kevin Boyle confirmed Sunday.

“We’re trying to make the best post-grad team in America,” Boyle told USA TODAY High School Sports’ Jason Jordan. “Bruno’s a really good player and really intense.

“I know it will benefit him a great deal playing with our postgrad team next season.”

Fernando averaged 10.8 point and seven rebounds per game at the Nike EYBL event in Hampton this week.

There had been some initial speculation in the fall that Fernando would consider a postgrad year at Montverde, but he denied that was the case and continued with the recruiting process.

Fernando told Scout.com that he will “consider everything” in terms of where he will play in college.

Along with Fernando, Joshua Greer announced on Twitter that he will play for Montverde’s post-grad team. Greer is a 6-4 guard from Jackson, Tenn.
