HEA Alumni Chris Baldwin (Class of 2015) and Tyonne Malone (Class of 2016) received their first Division 1 scholarship offers from UMass, Amherst and Head Coach Derek Kellogg, this past July. The two are alumni of our Elite Week program, as well as teammates on an extremely talented 15U Mass Rivals squad.
After a busy summer on the Adidas Grassroots Basketball circuit, with stops that included the V.I.P. Exclusive Run (Las Vegas), Adidas Invitational (Indiana), and Super 64 (Las Vegas), these offers could be the first of many for the Springfield, MA duo. Baldwin claims interest from Michigan, Indiana, Siena, Boston College, and Boston University. While Malone claims college interest from UConn, Providence, Indiana, Boston College, and Purdue.
Both Baldwin and Malone are extremely focused, and working hard to build on their momentum during this upcoming school year.
