Noreen unlikely and other links
The centerpiece of the incoming recruiting class was Kevin Noreen. Now he is asking to be released from his letter of intent. If it has reached this point, I assume he will not set foot on campus. Sanders' issues I understood. Heslip was a bit of a head scratcher, but no hard feelings. This situation...I frankly don't get. Where is Noreen going to find a better fit for his skills? In fact, I would say under Donahue, BC is a better fit for him than we were under Skinner. I realize it might not be Noreen's fault either. Maybe Donahue is encouraging it and wants his own players. But that is short sighted too. Where is Donahue going to find a better player at this stage in the process? Long term I am not worried about the program, but now I worry that we will be very, very young and raw after the Jackson-Ravenel-Elmore class graduates.
The opening on the BC staff didn't last long. Donahue hired Niagara assistant coach Akbar Waheed to complete his staff. His experience is all with Niagara. Let's hope he is ready for life in the ACC.
The guy Waheed replaced, John Gallagher only took the Hartford job after getting Donahue's blessing.
A series against Wake might be just what the doctor ordered for BC baseball. With today's win, they now have a winning record and a bit of momentum.
