Maine Maritime Academy Men’s Basketball Announces 2015-2016 Recruiting Class

CASTINE, Maine – Maine Maritime Academy men's basketball is proud to announce that Alik Espling (Orono High School / Orono, Maine), Dennis "DJ" Harris (St. Patrick-St. Vincent High School / Vallejo, California.), Adam Richardson (Old Town High School / Old Town, Maine), Andre Paul (Calais High School / Calais, Maine) and Alexander Neill (Unity College / Cony High School / Augusta, Maine) have paid their deposits and will be added to the 2015-2016 Maine Maritime Academy men's basketball roster.

"We are absolutely thrilled with this first recruiting class at Maine Maritime," said Maine Maritime Academy Head Men's Basketball Coach, David Muchnick. Maine Maritime enters the 2015-16 season with eight returning players, six of whom were underclassmen last season. "Bringing in multiple impact players at key positions, as well as one from 3,000 miles away, speaks highly of the work our entire coaching staff has done this year. Anytime you rebuild a program, you're looking to bring in newcomers who know what it takes to be successful. This recruiting class is a giant leap forward on the path to championship possibilities, and our staff couldn't be happier."

Alik Espling
Orono High School
Espling, a 6'3" guard plans to study International Business and Logistics at Maine Maritime Academy. Alik suffered a shoulder injury during his senior year, but remained a major contributor on a team that made it to the Eastern Maine Class C Championship.

"Despite the setback of his shoulder injury, Alik continued to support his teammates, coaches, and the Orono community through the entirety of their playoff run," said Muchnick. "He is in the process of making a full recovery, and when totally healthy, he will able to contribute everything from needed length and athleticism, to a diverse offensive game."

Dennis "DJ" Harris
St. Patrick-St. Vincent High School
Harris, a 6'1" guard, plans to study International Business and Logistics at Maine Maritime Academy. DJ helped lead his team to the Section IV Divisional Semifinals, and NorCal State Tournament.

"Truth be told, getting DJ here to Maine Maritime Academy was an absolute steal. He is the caliber of athlete that Maine Maritime basketball hasn't seen in a very long time and our fans will enjoy watching DJ on both sides of the ball for the next four years," Muchnick said.

Adam Richardson
Old Town High School
Richardson, a 6'4" forward plans to study Power Engineering Technology at Maine Maritime Academy. During his junior year Adam, helped lead his team to a Class B State Championship.

"Adam is a skilled forward who will fit perfectly within our system," said Muchnick, "He's been tremendously well coached in his time at Old Town under well-respected Coach Brian McDormand, and has the reputation of being a hard-worker and a terrific teammate."

Andre Paul
Calais High School
Paul, a 5'10" guard plans to study Marine Engineering Operations. Andre helped lead his team to a Class C State Championship.

"Andre is another diamond in the rough. He has a high-level ceiling combined with college athleticism. A number of high school and college coaches raved about Andre's potential as a college player, and his impact on Calais's championship season," Muchnick said. "We're excited he's on board."

Alexander Neill
Unity College / Cony High School
Neill, a 6'4" forward will study Vessel Operations Technology at Maine Maritime Academy. Alexander will join the Mariners after playing one season at Unity College.

"I think having a year of college basketball under Alex's belt will be a benefit to our program. Several of our current players know Alex and speak highly of his character and work ethic, two qualities that you cannot survive in our program without," said Muchnick. "I'm looking forward to working with Alex and seeing what he can bring to the table first hand."

"Though the future is bright for Maine Maritime Academy Basketball, so is the present. We have the ability to take a giant leap forward this season and our first practice on October 15th can't come soon enough," added Muchnick.
