Henault Makes Pick
The Endicott Gulls and head coach Phil Rowe just added another piece to the recruiting class of 2011. John Henault, a six-foot-two guard who starred at St. Bernard’s Central Catholic High School in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, committed to Endicott this past Friday following a visit.
Henault had a storied high school career at St. Bernard’s, finishing as the school’s all time leading scorer with 1,682 career points. His recruitment rose in correlation with the level of his play during his senior year, resulting in multiple scholarship offers from the division II level.
Ultimately though, Henault decided that Endicott offered all he was looking for.
"Endicott had all three of my majors that I was picking from," he said. "The campus is beautiful and I really enjoyed the tours when I was up there. The coaching staff did a really good job recruiting me and showed a very strong interest. They have a great internship program, which is something that I really think will be useful.”
Henault joins Matt Kneece (6’8”, C, Shrewsbury) and Andre Makris (6’7”, F, Pomperaug) in turning down scholarship interest and offers to head to the North Shore school in the fall. All three will have a great chance to make an immediate impact in their first season for the Gulls.
Henault will be the third player in the class of 2011 to turn down offers and recruitment from division two schools, as 6’8 Big Matt Kneece (Shrewsbury HS) 6’8 forward Andre Makris (Pomperaug HS) will also head to the North Shore school in the fall. All three will have a great chance to make an immediate impact in their first season for the Gulls.
