New Recruit - Max Huc.

Jason Smith, Huc's head coach at Brewster, had this to say about the newest Princeton recruit:

"Max is a tough, hard-nosed, competitive point guard.  He's an excellent passer and distributor of the basketball and an outstanding on the ball defender.  Max is adjusting well to life at Brewster.  He's a pleasant, positive young man who's a welcome addition to our community."

Huc was ranked in the Top 400 of Hoop Scoop's Fall 2006 list of juniors.

When asked by i95ballerz about his game, Huc said:
