Xavier 2018-2019 Player Preview: Zach Hankins
10/31/18 (Xavier University sports blog)
“How did I get here? How did a guy with no division one offers out of high school, a bad foot, and the experience of playing in Charlevoix in high school end up here?” Zach Hankins must ask himself something like that all of the time. Hankins wasn’t just lightly recruited out of high school, he basically wasn’t recruited at all. He had just one division two scholarship, and that from Ferris State. Now, four years later, Hankins is one of two genuine post men that perennial contender Xavier will field in the Big East.
… You know who Hankins and Ferris State played after MSU last season? Grand Rapids Community College, then St. Thomas Aquinas, then Indiana. Not Indiana like the Hoosiers, Indiana like the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. (Which seems like a nice school, by the way). You may note that none of those teams are Villanova or, frankly, even Detroit Mercy. It’s incredibly difficult to tell how effective a guy who dropped 31 on Northern Michigan and 24 on Saginaw Valley State is going to do against Villanova and Georgetown. Maybe the reason Hankins wasn’t playing at this level already isn’t because he fell through the cracks, but because he just isn’t good enough.
