Boston College landed a commitment this week from Vin Baker Jr., the 6-foot-9 son of former All-Star in Vin Baker Sr.
The younger Baker is a 6-foot-9 wing that, like his father, is from Old Saybrook, Connecticut. And, like his father, Vin Jr. hit a growth spurt late in his high school career, growing nearly six inches prior to his senior season, which was enough for an ACC school to take interest in his recruitment.
This isn’t the first time that BC has potentially found a diamond in the rough. Their two best players this past season, Jerome Robinson and Ky Bowman, are both north Carolina natives that slipped through the grasp of the Tobacco Road schools.
