Little concerning to me about Hawkins staying from BU presser. He mentioned the growth and what it meant for the future years for the freshmen and specifically only said Ace and Curbelo. I think CH can be for real, but we gotta keep him around a couple years and keep him happy if we want Burnett. They were teammates at prolific prep
You don't play a guy just to keep him from leaving or to maybe bring in one of his former teammates. You play him because he is working hard in practice and earning his playing time. Not saying that CH isn't doing these things (I don't get to see them practice) but BU will play the guys he sees putting in the most effort.

Agreed. A few weeks ago someone posted a video of practice, BU clearly called out his lack of intensity and work. He will learn
