On the heels of the departure of Rakim Sanders, The Boston Globe's Mark Blaudschun is now reporting that freshman guard Brady Heslip is also leaving the BC men's basketball program. Coach Steve Donahue granted Heslip's request to transfer earlier today.
Heslip is scheduled to visit Boise State this weekend.
A 6'2" point guard from Burlington, Ontario, Heslip joined the team after Christmas to begin practicing with the Eagles, but ultimately didn't see the floor this year. While Heslip didn't play this season, many thought the guard would challenge Biko Paris for the starting point guard position next year.
Donahue has to shift focus towards stopping the bleeding, with the futures of BC's other two recruits - forward Kevin Noreen and forward Papa Samba Ndao - up in the air.
With the departures of Rakim Sanders and Brady Heslip, and the loss of Tyler Roche to graduation, the Eagles are down to just 10 scholarship players, a figure that includes Noreen and Ndao.
