Mahoney Earns Scholarship Offer
The date was July 10th and a late spot had just opened up in the New England Elite 75 Showcase. Connor Mahoney got the call and he didn't dissapoint.
The six-foot-four rising senior from the Brooks School made the most of the opportunity and then some at the Elite 75, standing out as a skilled mismatch forward and proving himself capable of going blow for blow with the most talented prospects New England had to offer.
The rest of the summer followed a very similar path for Mahoney as he continued to stand out with his Middlesex Magic team, starring in Springfield and Hartford all the way down to Orlando.
While still not 100% following his torn ACL of last year, Mahoney has left no doubt as to his health and durability while also intriguing coaches as he continues to regain his explosiveness and show off his skill set.
All of his hard work paid off on Thursday night when he earned his first full scholarship offer from Le Moyne College in the Northeast 10 Conference.
Mahoney was still enjoying the moment as of Friday morning according to Middlesex Magic head coach Michael Crotty Jr., and seemingly not yet ready to make a final decision.
Mahoney becomes the fourth member of this year's Magic team to earn a scholarship offer. Pete Miller has multiple offers at this point while Anthony Barry has two NE-10 offers of his own and Joe Glynn owns an offer from Navy.
That might not be all though as Kyle Reardon has gotten plenty of division II interest but is more interested in the Ivy and NESCAC type schools while Aaron Davis is generating some scholarship level interest of his own. Mike Thorpe is right on the cusp as well, with most of his current recruitment coming from high academic small colleges while Cooper Ainge could follow in the family footsteps to BYU.
