Hoops Recruits Update: Worcester Academy

Monday, January 21, 2013


Highlighted by Rene Castro, a Butler-bound guard, four Worcester Academy boys basketball players have signed to play at Division I schools next season.

This year’s Worcester Academy boys basketball team has no shortage of Division I talent, boasting six prospects who have either signed national letters of intent with D-I schools or are being recruited by programs from the nation’s top conferences.

Here’s a rundown of the six players, who have led coach Jamie Sullivan’s Hilltoppers to an 11-3 record.

Rene Castro
Castro, a 6-foot-1 senior guard from Milton, is headed to Butler University. He was named Massachusetts’ Gatorade boys basketball player of the year for 2011-2012, when he averaged 23.4 points per game.

Matt Cimino
A 6-10 junior forward out of Falmouth, Maine, Cimino hasn’t yet committed to a school. Worcester Academy athletic director Ed Reilly, who coached the Hilltoppers from 2003-2011, said Cimino is being recruited “at a very high level, from coast to coast.”

Matt Mobley
A 6-3 senior guard and Worcester native, Mobley will play for Central Connecticut State University.

Matt Panaggio
A 6-4 senior guard out of Port Orange, Fla., Panaggio has signed with Lipscomb University.

Darryl Reynolds
Reynolds, a 6-8 senior forward from Philadelphia, remains undecided on where he will play next year. Reilly said Reynolds has drawn interest from schools in the Atlantic 10Big East and Pacific-12.

Tom Rivard
Rivard, a 6-7 senior guard from Worcester, is bound for James Madison University.
