The addition of Ihekoaba definitely lifts this class a bit.....

Sam is a Shaun Lawton clone! Similar body type, look and playing style. It is uncanny. Even showed the same quick hands in his highlight package that Lawton had on the defensive end 

One more scholarship to fill for this class. Another shooter wouldn`t hurt!

And to round out the roster of generic Europeans we have Yakov Smirnoff from Mother Russia and Balki Bartokomous from Perfect Strangers. What a country!

Hey Chef Boyardee, this kid has 7 D1 offers. I don`t know about you, but I like to see Coach swinging for the fences on kids with multiple D1 offers rather than a kid who should be playing D2.

Maine has a verbal commitment from Junior College transfer Maks Klanjscek, a 6`5 Slovenian shooter who played at Salt Lake CC. Maks played his freshman season at UMKC with Fofo Adetogun. He appeared in 25 games and shot 40% from 3 in 11 mpg at Kansas City. Klanjscek becomes the 3rd current Black Bear to prep at Hoosac School.
