The Boston Amateur Basketball Club (BABC) AAU club announced one of its former players, swingman Tyrese Hoxter, is headed to NJCAA Division 1 junior college Marshalltown (Iowa) Community College.
The 6-foot-3 Hoxter earned a spot on ESPN Boston's All-State Super Team in 2012 after leading the Townies to the MIAA Division 1 North Championship, the program's first sectional title since 2005. He averaged 19 points, eight rebounds and three assists in what was his junior season; he sat out this past season, having exhausted his MIAA eligibility.
Hoxter is the third BABC product in as many months to pledge to a junior college for the fall. Wareham point guard Darien Fernandez and Springfield Central guard/forward Kamari Robinson, also ESPN Boston All-State selections, are both headed to Laramie County (Wyo.) Community College.
