PUTNAM — 2017 season will be here before you know it and Putnam Science Academy basketball coach Tom Espinosa is going full force reloading.  Following a 34-7 season that saw the Mustangs reach the National Prep School Championship Final Four, Espinosa has begun the recruiting process for the upcoming school year and season.
Espinosa announced that former Iona Prep of New Rochelle, N.Y., standout Nick Brennen will play for the Mustangs beginning in September.
Brennen is fresh off a four-year career at Iona Prep where he will graduate in June. He’ll enter Putnam Science Academy as a postgraduate student. As a senior last season, Brennen, a 6-foot, 5-inch shooting guard, led the Gaels to a 15-13 record in one of the best Catholic Leagues in the country.
Last season he averaged 12 points per game while dishing out an impressive five assists per contest. He also grabbed 5 rebounds per game. Brennen has been a three year started at Iona Prep.
“We’re pleased that Nick has chosen to attend Putnam Science Academy. Playing at Iona Prep for four years will prepare to play at our level right away,” said Espinosa.
Brennen, joins returnees Eric Ayala, Akok Akok and Tanahj Pettway who will be back for another season in September.
“We have a great core of players coming back and Nick should fit in with this team immediately,” said Espinosa.
