Mathon Makes the Call

New England Recruiting Report | Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

The D.C. Blue Devils saw their third player commit to a division I school in the last two weeks as Sukhmail Mathon announced his pledge to Boston University and head coach Joe Jones on Tuesday night.

He follows in the foot-steps of AAU teammates Geo Baker and Caleb Green who committed to Rutgers and Holy Cross in consecutive weeks.

Mathon joined the Blue Devils earlier this spring and provided them with just the interior anchor they were looking for, helping them advance to the semi-finals of the Pittsburgh Jam Fest in his first weekend with the team.

His immediate contributions didn't go unnoticed as he quickly saw his recruitment jump to new levels with numerous new offers coming in that ranged all the way up to the Atlantic 10.

A 6-foot-9 big man who came to New England from Pennsylvania, Mathon's arrival at the Holderness School coincided with that of Woody Kampmann, who took the reigns of the NEPSAC program after previously serving as an assistant at Boston College.

Under Kampmann's guidance, Mathon's game has improved at a rapid rate in the last two years. He possesses inside-out versatility on the offensive end with his ability to both post and face-up, can anchor a defense with his shot-blocking and rebounding, and also has a rapidly expanding frame inside the paint.

Put it all together and he's a player who has consistently improved over the course of his two years in New England and very clearly still has his best basketball in front of him.
