Yoav Regev from Worcester Academy has committed to play at Ithaca. He is a smooth shooting forward with floor vision and rebounding ability. While minutes have been hard to come by on a loaded WA team, Regev averaged 15 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 assists per game last season at Tenafly HS (NJ). 

Connor Jenkins from Williston Northampton School will be playing in the NESCAC for Hamilton. The thickly framed forward is a capable floor spacer and contributes to the defensive glass. He played on the Hoop Group Showcase League for The House We Built.

Connor Hanavan, a guard from Berkshire School, is another Emmanuel commit a part of this article. He is a terrific shooter and nears the 40% mark from long-range. Hanavan also shows good intellect on the defensive end.
