BU solidifies team with new recruit class


By Christopher Dela Rosa/DFP Staff

Wednesday afternoon, the Boston University basketball team announced another player will join guard Cedric Hankerson in the fall, representing the class of 2017 on the BU basketball team.

The most recent addition is Dylan Haines of Liverpool, N.Y. Haines stands tall at an even 7-foot-0 and is coming out of a solid year of post-graduate basketball at St. Thomas More in Connecticut.

Hankerson is a 6-foot-5 guard from Miami and earned All-State First Team honors during his time at Coral Reef High School.

These two additions will make an impact right away for an otherwise small Terrieer squad.  Their biggest man last season was junior forward Dom Morris who, standing at 6-foot-7 and weighing in at 240 pounds, finally came into his own this season, but was still not a traditional big man.

Meanwhile, the addition of Hankerson will add some size to the small group in BU coach Joe Jones’ backcourt of freshman Maurice Watson, Jr., junior D.J. Irving and freshman John Papale.

With some primary needs filled, Jones and company are setting themselves up to be in a strong position for their 2013–14 campaign in their move to the Patriot League.
