While the 2017 transfer market is still in the focus of college basketball enthusiasts, and the 2018 recruiting market is heating up, the Boston College Eagles are delving into the 2019 market as well.
The Eagles have offered Chris Herren Jr., a guard graduating in 2019.

Eagles fans might remember his father, Chris Herren Sr., who played at BC for a year. Herren Sr.’s tenure at BC was riddled with difficulties, as Herren Sr. only played one game before sustaining a season-ending wrist injury. Herren Sr. was later suspended and expelled from the university for failing multiple drug tests.
After a short NBA career, Herren Sr. continued to suffer from addiction before becoming sober in 2008. Herren Sr. is now an advocate for rehabilitation and the prevention of drug abuse.
