Kevin O'Connor, the 6'6" junior forward from Stevens High, is transferring to the St. Paul's School. O'Connor will be reclassifying and joining the Class of 2012. This is a big loss for Stevens, who will have a tough season next year in Division III. But for O'Connor it is a good move to reclassify, and challenge himself in academics and in basketball. St. Paul's is a very good academic school. Search them on wikipedia and look at their list of alumni...very impressive stuff! Good luck to Kevin in the future.
On a side note, this is the second consecutive year that Stevens High has lost a top hoops prospect to prep school. Last summer, 6'10" Kaleb Tarczewski transferred to St. Mark's School in Mass. If both players stayed at Stevens, they would have been the favorites to win Division III in 2011. The 6'6" O'Connor and 6'10" Tarczewski would have both been seniors next year and would have been a dominant inside 1-2 punch.
