Chris Herren Jr. to play for BC men’s basketball in 2018-19

Chris Herren Jr., the namesake son of the former Boston College basketball player who transferred to Fresno State after the 1994-95 season and later became a renowned speaker on substance abuse and recovery, has signed to play for the Eagles in 2018-19.

Herren, a 6-foot-3-inch, 175-pound guard, will arrive as an incoming freshman this season after the Portsmouth, R.I., native spent two years at Tabor Academy in Marion, where last season he averaged 23.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 4.0 assists per game, while connecting on better than 42 percent of shots from beyond the 3-point arc.

Herren, whose uncle Mike Herren also played at BC from 1989-90, helped lead the Seawolves to a 17-7 overall record and the semifinals of the NEPSAC Class A championship, scoring 20 or more points in 70 percent of Tabor’s games.
