New York Knicks superstar power forward Amar'e Stoudemire never played during college basketball's March Madness tournament since he was drafted straight out of Cypress Creek High School back in 2002.

But STAT will be looking to roam the campus of the University of Miami after enrolling in the institution's General Studies program.

Stoudemire took to Twitter to announce his decision and tweeted a photo of himself holding up the infamous "U" symbol.

"Just enrolled at the University of Miami. Working on continuing my education".

Amar'e is actually a Florida native, and during the NBA lockout he attended history and science courses at Florida International University.
