If he's a half-decent post player, he'll probably get minutes right away.

According to the Boston Globe, Danny Ainge's son, Crew, is transferring to Babson after playing two years at Utah St.
Nice get.

It made the twitter rounds yesterday... Globe jumped on it as if they cared. NESN beat them.

Sorry - just having fun with it. :)

I hope it works out as well for the team as it does for his family.  Recent D1 transfers to Babo have been somewhat underwhelming. 
After the championship season no fewer than 3 guys came in.
Hasbargen came in as a grad and was fine when healthy, but certainly not a standout.
Dolan has been hurt for most of both years and only an end of the bench contributor.
Johnson was (now graduated) the best of the bunch, but had games where he flashed and others where he disappeared.
Some people hear “D1 transfer” and expect to see a man playing with boys.  Not usually the case.
In Ainge’s case, he’s a little older coming in (having served his mission) so the added maturity and pedigree can’t hurt.

I usually don't get all that hyped about recruits. I agree that you have to wait and see.

That said, the resume for Ainge seems a bit better than most recruits considering where he played and the fact he had 18 starts last season.

Does it mean automatic success? Heck no. We have seen many a "great" recruit from DI fail to live up to even remote expectations (St. Joe's Conn had a pretty interesting DI recruit - with NBA aspirations -  that didn't even finish the season last year). I just think this one might be one of those that seems to pan out.

Who knows. He has to be in uniform in a game before we really know.
