"There are two universities that Hinz is now strongly considering. He likes Carleton because of its 'exceptional' basketball program ... while McGill would earn him a degree that is a little more respected (although he's still waiting for acceptance into the commerce program he'd like to study)." – Orléans StarThe new nugget is waiting to hear back from McGill commerce (the major at Carleton for Ravens such as Stu Turnbull, Aaron Doornekamp and Os Jeanty). Check out this quote from McGill coach Craig Norman (who had great success recruiting in Ottawa when he almost took RMC to nationals, yes really):
"Oh my God, I think Tyson Hinz is the most complete basketball player I’ve ever seen at that age. He's a great young man, has tremendous work ethic, and he’s so polished for a kid his age. It’s unreal."Hinz will probably make out well at whatever school he chooses. It's kind of cool, in a Canadian way, that speculation has not run amok in the media. It's good that Tyson Hinz is free to be an 18-year-old and make up his mind, with his family's counsel.
