i don't think we should have to compete with VT and BU but this kid is still young. maybe he will blow up at some point and we can say we were first.
i could find very little about him. plays for AAU team New England Playaz though
He went to the BC elite camp 2 years ago and played well.
Yes, he is ready to blow up. He is a big time rebounder and shot blocker from Haiti that has endless potential, and BC isn't his only high-major interest so far.
I assume BCEaglesFan means the BC elite camp two WEEKS ago, where Baptiste reportedly dominated on the defensive end, despite not being fully recovered from a sprained MCL he suffered in April. The impression I get is that he's a natural shot blocker somewhat like Noel -- is there something in the water in Haiti? His name has been floating around in NERR for a while, but BC seems to have just begun to show an active interest in him -- could this be connected to the AAU having recently blacklisted the malodorous coach of the N.E. Playaz? He certainly shows every sign of becoming a high-value recruiting target. With Baptiste, Brennan, Falzon, Miller, Sharma, and others, 2015 is shaping as a big year locally, maybe nearly as good as 2014 -- and BC will have a lot of open scholarships for 2015.
