After offers from Providence and Vanderbilt within the last month and then an offer from UCLA on Saturday, it’s safe to say Kyle Filipowski has emerged as a major college basketball prospect.

The 2022 Massachusetts big man is also receiving interest from schools like Pittsburgh, Wake Forest, Clemson, Purdue, Brown and Boston University.

“It feels great for me personally,” the 6-foot-9, 220-pounder said. “It gives me a big confidence booster of what I’m capable of. It pushes me to be better and keep improving daily. It’s good motivation. It just feels so great to see all of the hard work and sweat paying off.”

College coaches tell the Wilbraham & Monson Academy standout they like his versatility.

“They keep telling me how they love how I can play multiple positions on the court and play a guard or big and guard multiple positions,” he said. “They like my inside-out game, how I can handle the ball, shoot the ball and post up as well.”

Filipowski hasn’t scheduled any visits yet.

“I’m still working that out with my family and parents, when we’re preparing to make unofficial visits,” he said.

Notre Dame’s 2022 recruiting board hasn’t been solidified yet, but the Irish are aware of Filipowski and he’s on their radar.

Filipowski admitted he doesn’t know a ton about Notre Dame just yet, but said “I know it has a really good reputation for its environment and obviously sports and academics. I was definitely going to take a look more into that.”

He knows what he’ll be looking for in a school when it comes time to make a decision.

“It’s about that fit and where I feel most comfortable academically and athletically,” he said. “A school that can help me in both aspects. That will definitely have an impact on my decision as well as the environment and the people who will be around me.”

The New York native enjoyed his first year at Wilbraham & Monson Academy, where he plays under head coach Mike Mannix.

“I loved it,” he said. “It was a big stepping stone for me. It was real challenging in the beginning, but I took it on and was able to overcome a lot of it. I’m really happy with how I finished this first year and I’m excited to continue the next couple years at WMA.

“Coach Mannix has helped me tremendously with everything; my game, exposure and all of that. I’m immensely grateful for that and to play in an environment where I can do my thing and show what I have. It’s just great.”
