New Zealand teenager Sam Waardenburg has taken a major stride in a blossoming basketball career by signing a full scholarship with the University of Miami.

Junior Tall Black and NZ Breakers development player Waardenburg, 17, committed his future after attending several private camps by invitation and weighing up a number of college options.

"It is a great feeling to finally have it all done, it was a lot of paperwork to go over with the family but that stage is complete now," the Rangitoto College student said.

"It is all done and it feels great."

The 2.08m power forward will leave for Florida soon after Christmas, having first competed at the Oceania junior championships in Fiji in December.
