  • Trey Carrier of Wilton-Lyndeborough has narrowed his college list to five: WPI, RPI, Wentworth, Gordon and Roger Williams. Suffolk University had seen him play during the AAU season, but their lack of an engineering program has hindered their chances of landing Carrier. Nothing is official with Carrier, as pursuing a post-grad year is a possibility.

 

  • Speaking of Suffolk University, they were in attendance at the BABC Winter Classic to watch Griffin Perry of Bridgewater-Raynham. A representative of the school talked to Perry briefly, and along with Suffolk, Wentworth College was in attendance examining players on Bridgewater-Raynham and talked to the head coach for a bit.

  • Austin Williams of Seton Hall Prep is receiving interest from Colgate and UMBC. Despite his offers, thee’s no timeline for him to make a decision.

 

  • Javian Fleming of Canton (MS) has been a main attraction on the basketball circuit with much interest and offers, with Rice and UCF being the latest to be added to his list.

 

  • Suffield Academy (CT) is interested in Dimon Carrigan of Cambridge (MA).

 

  • Mitchell Seraille of Jack Yates has received levels of interest from UTSA, Lamar, SFA, Sam Houston State, Tulsa and more.

Acevedo’s teammate, Bryan Henry, is receiving interest from UMass Boston and SNHU (unofficially visited). To round out the news from Bradford Christian, Jonathan Paulino is receiving interest from Salem State and has begun the process of heading to the school.

 

  • Jimmy Yfantopulos of Brimmer and May is receiving interest from Brown, Dartmouth, Colgate, Holy Cross, American and the University of New Hampshire. He was recently in attendance for the Colgate-BU game in Boston and is expected to visit Colgate “soon.”

Along with showing interest in Clarke, Hotchkiss has their sights set on EJ Dambreville of Bridgewater-Raynham for a post-grad year.

  • Justin Rogers of Parkway (LA) is recognized as a four-star dual-threat quarterback. His play has led to him receiving already known offers from Ole Miss, Mississippi State, TCU, Arkansas and more. From what I was able to gather, he’s expected to unveil his Top-5 in April with a decision expected to follow in the summer. Rogers is also getting interest from South Carolina, Indiana and Oregon.
