NHS’ Boeheim is Ivy Bound

Jimmy Boeheim 2017

New Hampton School post-graduate forward Jimmy Boeheim committed to Cornell on Tuesday night.

The son of Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim, the Albany City Rocks product has made significant strides in his game over the last year and proved himself a definite division I player during his season in New England.

He announced his decision via his twitter account:

The move not only gets him to the division I level, and the Ivy League, but it also moves him back close to home in upstate New York.

Boeheim is a six-foot-six southpaw forward with a predictably high skill set and basketball I.Q. He shoots the ball well from the three-point line, is a heady passer, and because he's willing to mix it up physically around the paint, he's also capable of seeing time as either a stretch-four or bigger wing.

Less than 24 hours after his commitment, Boeheim was back on the court with his New Hampton teammates, helping them earn a 65-60 road win at St. Thomas More in the opening round of the NEPSAC AAA tournament.

The Huskies, who will now travel to Brewster Academy for Saturday's semi-finals, have five players committed to division I schools in their 2017 class with Boeheim joining Kimani Lawrence (Arizona State), Anthony Gaines (Northwestern), Kristers Zoriks (St. Mary's), and Walker Miller (Dartmouth).

Below are some of Boeheim's highlights from his post-graduate season:
