Donahue closes on a couple of Californians
Although we would love to have a team filled with Boston kids, BC coaches have to search far and wide for talent, and Steve Donahue has found some in California. He recieved commitments from two California prospects in Ryan Anderson and Lonnie Jackson. The two are on the same AAU team and visited BC together this past weekend.
Anderson is skinny power forward who is more shooter than a banger. He fits in with Donahue's "everyone can shoot from any space on the floor" philosophy.
Jackson is a good student who was also considering programs like Stanford and Arizona State. He's another shooter, but you hope he can also play a little point guard when needed.
We now have five recruits for the 2011 class and have a good mix of size and shooting. Of course there is still room for Alex Murphy, but the pressure on Donahue to get bodies is now eased a bit. What will be interesting is watching a BC team where everyone likes to shoot. I hope someone is willing to rebound a bit!
