This Week’s Commitment Catch-Up
It has been a busy week of commitments, especially at the division III level, as early decision applicants are now hearing from various admissions offices.
While real-time information on commitments can always be found on the NERR social media platforms on the day they become available (@NERRhoops on both Twitter and Instagram), there were so many this week that we wanted to circle back to recognize each of them.
The most notable commitment, or in this case commitments, comes from the Meshanic twins. Carter Meshanic and Hunter Meshanic have starred for Kingswood-Oxford and Connecticut Elite in recent years, put up huge numbers, and helped take both programs to new levels. Now they'll be joining their older brother at Hobart, where they are bound to keep their winning ways going.
- New England Storm and Windham High School (NH) guard Joey DaSilva announced his commitment to Endicott on Thursday. DaSilva is the fourth member of the Storm's 2021 recruiting class to commit to a college basketball program and has played for head coach Matt Regan for the last eight years.
- Catholic Memorial High School (MA) and Boston Warriors forward Jack Wirtanen announced his commitment to St. Lawrence. Wirtanen is a strong and versatile wing forward who has vastly improved in the last year.
- The Middlesex Magic hit the 20 commitment mark earlier this week, with more to come, as Abington High School (MA) forward Matt Maguire announced his commitment to WPI. Maguire was named All-Scholastic by the Boston Globe after putting up 18 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 assists as a junior.
- Marianapolis Prep and BCRI point guard Mike Levesque committed to Endicott earlier this week. Levesque is a true point guard and leader who is loaded with intangibles and competitiveness.
- Rivers School and Middldex Magic wing Jack Richard announced his commitment to Colby College. At 6-foot-4, Richard is a high-level shot-maker and very smart player who named All-ISL last year as a junior.
- Hotchkiss School and NE6 guard C.J. Mitchell committed to Amherst and first year head coach Marlon Sears. Mitchell is an experienced guard who can play both on and off the ball with his ability to run a team and score the ball.
- One of Mitchell's running mates in the Hotchkiss backcourt, Jonathan Coffy, is headed to play his college basketball at Washington University, a prestigious UAA school in Saint Louis.
- Last week, Middlebury got one of the bigger D3 steals of the year so fall when Williston Northampton post-grad, Mansfield alum, and longtime Rise Above Basketball product Sam Stevens made his commitment. Stevens is a late-blooming shot-maker with elite intangibles and habits. He should be an immediate impact player in the NESCAC.
- NMH post-grad Albert Fallas committed to Emory University last week. Fallas is a pure point guard with an exceptionally high IQ who has vastly exceeded expectations since his arrival in New England.
- The Berkshire School announced a pair of post-grad commitments in the NESCAC as Canin Reynolds, a former Columbia pledge, will head to Amherst while Hank Morgan is headed to Hamilton.
