Boston College Basketball Scores Recruit Olivier Hanlan

New, comments

According to Evan Daniel of Scout.com, Coach Steve Donahue and the Eagles have scored another recruit for the 2012 season. This time the recruit is 3 star guard 6'3 185 lbs Olivier Hanlan of New Hampton Prep School, in New Hampton New Hampshire. Hanlan is the second guard BC has picked up, joining Joe Rahon who the Eagles picked up last week. Daniel think's this is a huge pickup for the Eagles:

This is a very nice pick up for BC. He's a bigger lead guard. Skilled. Plays hard. Pete Hutchins at New Hampton loves him.

Hanlan had a handful of other offers including schools such as Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, Dayton, Iowa, and UVA. Scouting report looks promising for Hanlan:

Hanlan is a great passer (either hand) that always plays with his head up and is always looking for his teammates. He's the type of player that makes his teammates better. He is very good in the open court and if there's no one to pass to, he can take it to the tin or hit the pull up jumper. Olivier can finish with contact and has decent athleticism. When locked in, Olivier is a piranha on defense as he is long and quick with good size at the point.

According to ESPN, Hanlan was the highest rated recruit BC was considering. Just another example of Coach Donahue doin' work.
