Subject: Frosh leaves Blue Devils

From the NB Herald: CCSU’s talented freshmen class of seven dwindled to six late last week. The Blue Devils an-nounced Tuesday forward Jean-Philipe Morin withdrew from school to move closer to his hometown of Aylmer, Quebec. Morin was projected as a starter and would have recived a ton of minutes.

Howie has done a great job recruiting and picking up talanted Canadians, but this is the second player (Jon Popofski) to leave CCSU because they were "homesick."

don't read anything into it. Popofski was upset with lack of playing time.....Morin was truly homesick.

Too bad, he (Morin) was homesick, it sounded like he could have been an impact player. Didn't relize Popofski wasn't happy w/ his minutes. But I'm glad to see its not a trend of Canadians (or any player) not liking hard hittin' New Britain.

I know it is difficult to find enuff minutes for a recruiting class this big. I am a SHU fan & they are going to go thru this on the women's team (6 new faces). The possibilities of some transfers are common & not to be unexpected.


BTW, I like this site.

Better to have him leave now than have Howie adjust his lineup in the middle of the season. It sounds from the NB herald article that this kid came in half- hearted

not half-hearted, but a little heavy hearted....he was a hard worker and it came as a complete shock to everyone, just read Howie's quotes in the Herald.
