Good morning! We start off with some possibly very positive recruiting news for Jim Christian:
Former Oklahoma State pledge Jared Terrell visited Boston College on Monday, sources confirmed to SNY.tv.
Adam Finkelstein reported that Terrell said he "really enjoyed it."
Boston College recently hired Jim Christian as head coach and Christian added Preston Murphy, a former Rhode Island assistant, and Scott Spinelli, a Massachusetts native, to his staff.
The 6-foot-3 Terrell of Brewster (N.H.) Academy picked Oklahoma State last September over Rhode Island, Providence and Cincinnati. He is ranked No. 66 in the Class of 2014 by Rivals.com.
Providence is no longer recruiting Terrell, sources told SNY.tv, while Rhode Island remains in the mix.
Well, previous reports indicated BC and PC were the leaders in the clubhouse. So if PC is no longer in on him, maybe signs are starting to point toward an excellent first addition by the new coaching staff. And maybe a brief lowering of the torches and pitchforks.
In basketball news in the other direction:
Boston College transfer Ryan Anderson, originally scheduled to begin an official visit to Indiana today, tells Inside the Hall he'll reschedule his trip to Bloomington.
Discussion of an incoming hockey recruit on a Capitals blog:
Following the conclusion of the season, both players will move on to college rinks in their home region of New England. Beverly, Massachusetts native Pinho is committed to Providence College, while Auburn, New Hampshire native Sanford will enroll at Boston College.
Asiya Dair from Almaty, Kazakhstan, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play tennis at Boston College in 2014, according to an announcement made by head coach Nigel Bentley on Monday.
Crack tennis recruiting reporter Brian Favat reports that "she has like, played in Wimbledon and [crap]." 5 stars? 5 stars. (Insert Borat jokes here)
The Penguins blanked the sleepy New York Rangers to go up 2-1 in their second round playoff series. Brian Gibbons, in his second game back from injury, was actively involved again for Pittsburgh. I thought he had a couple rough moments early in the game, but he recovered nicely and ended up with a shot on goal and two blocked shots. His two blocks were very well done and very memorable if you watched the game, including one on the Rangers' late power play in the final minutes of the game.
