From this looks of it, Boston University men’s basketball coach Joe Jones is not quite done building his dream basketball team.
Earlier this offseason, the university announced that the 7-foot-0 center Dylan Haines and the 6-foot-5 guard Cedric Hankerson would both be joining the team. Now two more fresh faces will be donning the scarlet and white.
The first of the new transfers is center Blaise Mbargorba. It was reported Wednesday evening that the former Southern Methodist University player chose BU over Seton Hall University despite being a New Jersey native.
Mbargorba stands at 6-foot-11 and will add more depth and height to a center position that was lacking both attributes during the 2012–13 campaign. Per NCAA transfer rules, Mbargorba will not be able to play until the 2014–15 season.
Wagner College guard Eric Fanning is another transfer that will also soon be calling Boston his home. Fanning is 6–foot–4 and, like the incoming freshman Cedric Hankerson, will also add size in a small backcourt.
In his time at Wagner, Fanning played in 22 games, averaging just under 17 minutes, scoring 6.4 points per game and also recording 2.9 rebounds per game as well.
BU has made no comment yet on the state of the roster for the upcoming 2013-14 season.
