Here’s one we didn’t see coming: BC has offered Chris Herren, Jr (2019).

His dad, Chris Sr., started at Boston College before an early injury ended his season. BC didn’t appreciate the failed drug tests and kicked him out. After that he transferred to Fresno, where he played for post-Vegas Jerry Tarkanian.

Duke had also offered him and his picking his hometown BC saved Duke from a terrible situation: he would have probably failed drug tests at Duke during the year Coach K was forced to sit out due to his back situation.

Anyway, after a long and terrible struggle with addiction, Herren’s life is back on track. It’ll be interesting to see how his son does, wherever he ends up.
