Big Summer For Corey Hassan

Corey Hassan, a 6-foot-3 shooter, heated up his recruitment with a strong summer. The New Hampshire standout is weighing his options.

The New Hampshire Playerz were a team to be reckoned with late in the summer. They made a strong run in the AAU Nationals and Corey Hassan, a senior guard, was a driving force.

The 6-foot-3 standout from Merrimack High entered the summer with a single D-I offer and host of interest from D-II programs. Now, he's received no less than 8 Division I offers in August.

Central Connecticut State, Vermont, Canisius, High Point, Wofford and New Hampshire are in the chase. Plus, a few high-majors are keeping tabs on him.

"My two dream schools that I've been watching since I was a little kid are looking at me now too: Boston College and Providence," Hassan said. The Friars and Eagles have not offered scholarships to date.

"I'm hoping to make my decision before November. If they don't offer me that's fine but if they do I'm not going to definitely go there. I'll have to look at it and see how much I'll play. I want to go somewhere and play."

The pieces could come together nicely for New Hampshire with Hassan and they are strong. "Right now I really like UNH because it's close to home and they've been looking at me for the longest time. I like Boston College and Providence and the University of Vermont. I still like High Point."
