BANGOR - The back-to-back North Atlantic Conference Champion Husson University men's basketball team has received their first commitment to their 2014 recruiting class. Connor Adams from Bangor High School has committed to play for the Eagles next year and will look to study Nursing.
The 6-5 center averaged 11 points, 6 rebounds, 1.5 blocks per game while shooting 66% from the field. Adams was a steady inside presence for the Rams who finished the year 13-6.
"This is a great start to our recruiting class. Connor had a good high school career and we think his best basketball is ahead of him. He is long, athletic, runs the floor well, and catches anything close,” says Head Men’s Basketball Coach Warren Caruso, “He is a great fit for our system and we look forward to seeing him on the floor next year."
Husson is coming off their best season under Coach Caruso, where they ended the season at 26-3, falling in the First Round of the NCAA Division III Tournament. The 2013-2014 season was the second straight year the Eagles won 20 or more games, and earned their 4th National Tournament Appearance in six seasons.
