Saints finalize 2015 recruiting class
Evan Hymes, a 5-foot-9 point guard from Durham, N.C., and Marcus Hopper, a 6-8 forward from Queens, will join the Saints next year.
The commitments complete a wild two months that included three staff changes and now result in the largest scholarship class in program history.
“There’s a lot of positive energy surrounding the program,” Buonaguro said. “I’m excited about the nucleus of young talent we have with the six new recruits, and (sophomores) Rakeem Brookins and Trenity (Burdine).”
Hymes grew up in Clifton Park, before moving to Long Island and then eventually to North Carolina.
Hopper averaged 12 points and 8.5 rebounds, while shooting 44 percent from 3-point range for Holy Cross High School.
Those two join DeVonte Beard, Rob Poole, Lionel Gomis and Imoh Silas.
