"I chose Wilmington because I love the coach, their style of play, and felt like I could become a better person on and off the court at the school," Cubbage said.
Wilmington is coached by Mike Gallagher, who grew up in Haddonfield, attended Philadelphia's St. Joseph's Prep, and is a former head coach at Bishop Eustace and a former Paul VI assistant.
Gallagher has recruited the South Jersey area heavily. This season's team had three players who graduated from South Jersey high schools: sophomore guard Jarvis Perry of Willingboro, senior guard Corye Payton of Burlington Township, and junior forward Brandon Fox of Deptford.
In addition, former Pennsauken and Timber Creek coach Tim Dunne and former Washington Township and Sterling assistant Mark Napoleon are assistants to Gallagher at Wilmington.
Cubbage said he is projected to play both power forward and center. He was part of consecutive Olympic Conference National Division title teams at Paul VI.
A Camden resident, Cubbage also visited West Virginia Wesleyan.
"I felt great getting a full scholarship," he said. "It's great that my parents won't have to pay anything."
