Roster retooling continues
UMaine's roster makeover continues with the signing of Jerrell Boswell to a letter of intent. Coach Ted Woodward, on the heels of the Terrance Mitchell signing, announced that Boswell, a 6-0 guard from Covington, Ga., and Snead State Community College in Boaz, Ala., will join the Black Bears this fall.
Boswell was the sixth-leading scorer in the Alabama Community College Conference during his sophomore season, averaging 18.5 points per game.
Last season, he posted five games of 30 or more points, including a 45-point outburst against Northwestern Tech on Dec. 4.
He made 147 three-pointers while shooting 40.9 percent from behind the arc, averaging 4.9 three-pointers per game. Boswell had four games where he made 10 or more three-pointers, including 15 in one game which is the second-most in National Junior College Athletic Association history according to their record books. He was a two-time All-Region 23 selection and led his team to a top-25 ranking during the 2008-09 season.
With the commitment, Boswell becomes the sixth first-year player on the UMaine roster for the upcoming season. He'll be joined by:
Terrance Mitchell, junior, 6-3 guard, Faulkner State (Ala.);
Jacob McLemore, freshman, 6-2 guard, San Diego;
Murphy Burnatowski, freshman, 6-6 forward, Canadian junior national team ;
Mike Allison, freshman, 6-9 forward, Canadian junior national team ;
Travon Wilcher, sophomore, 6-7 forward, UMass transfer.
