Northeast recruiting news and notes

A number of northeast recruits generated news this past week but a pair of talented big men stole the headlines. Wilbraham & Monson rising senior Goodluck Okonoboh, who earlier this week placed 19th in the debut of the ESPN 100, landed an offer from one of college hoops blue bloods, while 2015 post Mike Watkins popped for an in-state program.

Here’s a look at the rest of this week’s news and notes from the northeast region.

• Holy Cross picked up a commitment from Roxbury Latin (Mass.) 2014 PG Pat Benzan, who will do a post-graduate year before joining the Crusaders’ 2015 incoming class.

• Westtown (Pa.) 2014 swingman Jared Nickens is taking an official visit to Maryland this weekend. He checked out Oregon State recently and has subsequent trips scheduled to Wake Forest and Dayton later this month.
