Hawkins Has A Leader

Justin Hawkins, a 6-6 small forward from Lakewood (Calif.) Mayfair, has several schools that he is seriously considering. But he says one school has emerged as a leader...

Justin Hawkins, 6-6 JR SF Lakewood (Calif.) Mayfair, lists Boston College, Washington, Notre Dame, ASU, Marquette, Depaul and Utah as schools that he is seriously considering.

When asked if any school stood out from the group, Hawkins said, "Boston College. I like Coach Skinner and their system, the way they play, could benefit me."

Hawkins has yet to take any trips, but said he'll do so after the July evaluation period. He said both Boston College and Washington have said they want to set up dates for official visits.

We asked Hawkins if he had any thoughts on leaving the west. "I'd like to stay close to the west if possible," Hawkins said. "But if the best situation is elsewhere, I'll go east. If everything else is equal, then I'd prefer to stay in the west."

Hawkins will play at ABCD, then travel with the Rockfish to the Rumble in the Bronx, the Big Time and Best of Summer.

Hawkins has achieved a qualifying SAT score.
