Boston Boilermakers New Numbers / Mitch McGary


http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/celtics/post/_/id/4685301/rapid-reaction-rookie-introduction

Looks like JJ will be wearing #12 and E'Twaun will be wearing #55.  There is also a video clip of the former Boilers being introduced and a little blurb about why they chose the numbers they did.

Nice story about Mitch McGary and his struggles with his learning disability and how he has overcome those obstacles.  It also mentions near the end of the story that Purdue was the first school to offer Mitch a full ride and that his parents really wanted him to sign with the Boilers.  Hopefully he listens to his parents. It also mentions that we haven't recruited him much lately but it would be interesting if we got back into the mix.  I wonder if Painter still has an interest in Mitch or if that ship has sailed.  He obviously has the talent and it sounds like he is making progress academically.  I wouldn't mind adding someone of his size and talent to the 2012 class.
