Former #ODU G Dimitri Batten just confirmed, via text message, that he will transfer to Boston College for his final season.

Jim Christian is putting another one of his scholarships to good use, by bringing in Old Dominion transfer Dimitri Batten. Batten is eligible to play immediately.
Batten is another wing, but with Hanlan as the primary point, some of Rahon's old minutes will go to perimeter players. Batten also has a chance to earn playing time with his defense.
While we all wanted a big 2014 recruit, a fifth year is a win-win. Like football, it represents a low risk, mature player.
Now that Christian's got a 2014 recruit and a fifth year, I expect the next scholarship to go to a true transfer.
