Atascadero High boys basketball standout Robbie Berwick will announce Saturday at a news conference where he’ll play in college.

Berwick tweeted Monday night that he’ll make the announcement at the Atascadero High gym at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Berwick said via text message that his final four choices after a heavy recruiting process are Texas-El Paso, Colorado State, Florida State and Fresno State.

Berwick re-tweeted multiple comments from friends that had the hashtag of UTEP or made reference to UTEP in the tweets. UTEP is the program where Paso Robles native Bob Cantu recently took a job as an assistant coach.

But Berwick said Monday night he’s not ready to publicly announce his decision.

“I decided I will be making my college basketball decision Saturday night at 6!” Berwick wrote in the tweet. “I’m excited for what the future holds.#basketball.”

Berwick, a 6-foot-4 point guard, averaged 18 points, seven assists and five rebounds per game while leading the Greyhounds to a share of the PAC 7 title and a 19-9 record as a junior.

He was The Tribune County Player of the Year last season and made a game-winning 3-pointer against Righetti in a pivotal contest to decide Atascadero’s chances at a league title. Atascadero shared the championship with the Warriors.

Berwick also was selected to a prestigious AAU basketball camp — the Pangos All-American camp in Long Beach — from his summer club team.

Berwick also has scholarship offers from UC Davis, UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara and Cal Poly, among others.
