New Jersey Big Man Changes Schools

Reporter Mike Sullivan has the story on Markus Kennedy, a big man from St. Patrick High School, changing schools ...

Markus Kennedy, a 6-foot-9, 230-pound center from St. Patrick High School in Elizabeth, New Jersey, did transfer from Kevin Boyle's basketball program, according to his AAU coach, Matt Pauls of the New Jersey Athletic Basketball Club.

"It happened recently," confirmed Pauls. "He will play at Living Faith/Apex Academy in New Jersey."

Kennedy, a 2010 prospect who has two more full seasons to improve his individual game, was a solid player near the rim for Pauls this past summer during the July evaluation period, especially at the events played at the Wide World of Sports complex in Disney World.

Pauls said Rutgers, Penn State, Miami of Florida, Massachusetts, Villanova, Temple, and Ohio State were schools of interest. It was unclear whether Syracuse would pursue Kennedy.
