Prep Profile - New Hampton SchoolAs we continue our tour through Class AAA of the NEPSAC we’ll head to New Hampton School where head coach Nick Whitmore begins his second season at the head of the program.In some ways though this second season is more of a new beginning than last year was as almost the entire roster has turned over and quite a bit of young talent has joined the program.The ReturnersIt’s a short list – Shandon Brown.Brown is the only returning player from last year’s team and ultimately responsible for showing the newcomers “the New Hampton way” that was first coined under former head coach, and current Dartmouth assistant, Peter Hutchins and carried over when Whitmore took over.http://www.newenglandrecruitingreport.c ... n-school-1

Prep Profile - Bridgton AcademyClass AAA of the NEPSAC is down to just five teams this year as South Kent School has moved to AA and after having profiled Brewster Academy, Northfield Mount Hermon, St. Thomas More, and New Hampton School over the course of the last week it is time to turn our attention to Bridgton Academy.The narrative really hasn’t changed at Bridgton in recent years as the former NEPSAC powerhouse has been relegated to strive for the role of giant killer as their lack of financial aid dollars has prevented them from competing for the championships they dominated a decade ago.The only common denominator among those distinct generations has been head coach Whit Lesure, a true legend of prep school basketball, who continues to approach the job with no less enthusiasm than he did when his roster was comprised by a collection of mid to high-major prospects.http://www.newenglandrecruitingreport.c ... -academy-8

Prep Profile - Woodstock AcademyTypically, a new prep program would look at year 1 as an opportunity to get their feet wet and set a stable foundation for the future. The administration at Woodstock Academy, however, had their sights set on being anything but typical and have operated with the goal of winning at the highest level from the very beginning. So they hired an established coach with a winning history then gave him the means to build a successful and sustainable program. Instead of just dipping their toes in the water, Woodstock came to the beach prepared to swim with the sharks!Tony Bergeron takes the reins at Woodstock after spending the last four seasons at Springfield’s Commonwealth Academy. Although the woods of Northern Connecticut offer a stark contrast to his former inner-city campus, Bergeron remains committed to developing under-the-radar talent and relying on a relentless attacking style to make life miserable for his opponents.http://www.newenglandrecruitingreport.c ... ck-academy

NEPSAC AAA PreviewClass AAA of the NEPSAC remains the pinicle of prep school basketball.Every asset has a correlating liability though and while the likes of Brewster and NMH have taken their programs to unprecedented levels in recent years, while New Hampton and St. Thomas More have remained competitive with the very best in the country, others have elected to drop down to lower levels in hopes of remaining competitive.South Kent is the most recent to follow the likes of MCI, Winchendon, Worcester, and Phillips Exeter, all of whom competed in the NEPSAC's top league ten years ago, but have since moved down to various other classes within the NEPSAC.http://www.newenglandrecruitingreport.c ... -preview-5

Prep Profile - Putnam Science AcademyFor as much as things change, when you have established yourself as a top national post-graduate program, they remain the same.And that is what has happened at Putnam Science Academy.This is the first time in four years that the season has begun without Hamidou Diallo in the PSA gym as he is now set to begin his freshman season at Kentucky after enrolling at mid-season last year.Nevertheless, with a roster that is almost entirely new, the Mustangs are once again loaded with talent and poised to be among the national contenders.The Returnershttp://www.newenglandrecruitingreport.c ... -academy-4

Prep Profile - Cushing AcademyWe’ll begin our Class AA previews with the defending champions at Cushing Academy.The Penguins made a Cinderella type run last year under first year head coach James Cormier, not just winning the AA crown but also qualifying for the National Prep Championship.Lots has changed since last year though, most notably the graduation of Wabissa Bede, who is now a freshman at Virginia Tech.Bede wasn’t just a consensus top 100 national prospect, but he was arguably the best leader in New England, maybe the best leader New England had seen in several years.[i:3k3fxb4k]The Returners[/i:3k3fxb4k] ... -academy-8
