Rare All-State company for St. Clement's Bruce

With his selection to our fourth annual boys basketball All-State Team this afternoon, St. Clement senior Khaneil Bruce joins a rarified company of athletes to make ESPN Boston's All-State Teams in two different sports.

The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Bruce, a Cambridge resident, made our All-State Team in football last fall as a wide receiver, after helping lead the Anchormen to the Division 6 North title with 1,207 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns. He earned a spot on our boys basketball All-State Team this winter after leading the Anchormen to the Division 4 state championship, their first state title in school history, averaging 16.4 points and 7.8 rebounds.

Bruce's future is in football but he remains undecided on college plans, though the University of Rhode Island remains a possibility. It may just be due diligence, but it is also worth noting that Oregon State recently inquired about Bruce.

Bruce joins an elite group of athletes that are all doing big things at the college level. Here are the other two-sport All-State selections in the four-year history of ESPNBoston.com's high school section:
