Jake O’Brien Returning to BU

The first recruiting score for new Boston University men’s basketball coach Pat Chambers came from within the program. Sophomore-to-be Jake O’Brien – who had previously asked for his release from BU when former coach Dennis Wolff was fired – has decided to return to the Terriers instead of transferring.

O’Brien, a 6’8″ forward from Weymouth, MA, was the America East rookie of the year in 2008-2009, averaging 12.5 points and 4.6 rebounds per game. O’Brien decided to explore other options once Wolff left and reportedly was receiving interest from Xavier, Umass and others, but has decided to honor his commitment to the Terriers.

My Take: Big news for Chambers and the Terriers. O’Brien is a talent who, once he fills out his 6’8″ frame a little, will be a force in America East. Chambers has seemingly breathed a breath of fresh air into the BU program quickly and keeps the Terriers as the team to beat in America East in 09-10.
