New England golden crop of hoops targets and other links

When arguing that BC cannot reach the next level in basketball or football, people often claim that there is not enough talent in New England. In basketball that might not be the case anymore. There is a strong and growing AAU pipeline and more and more top prospects are now playing in New England prep schools. Let's hope that BC can start to leverage our location...especially with the very deep 2012 class.

So far it seems like there isn't much meat to the 'Skinner to the Celtics' rumor. I actually think he would be a great fit for Doc Rivers and company. He's not the defensive specialist that Tom Thibodeau is, but Skinner was an under appreciated Xs & Ox guy.

Here is a feature the NFL's top agent and BC guy Tom Condon.

Love seeing Boston College in the lists of schools interested in these prospects as well as schools in attendance at the U17 tournaments. It may be unlikely to land these recruits but you can't win if you don't play and BC hasn't been playing the recruiting game in a long time.

Skinner would be a perfect fit for the NBA...just not MY team, the Celtics, please.
