Looks like point guard should be solidified for a few years with Johnson and Luc. From highlights Luc is very athletic with a few dunks despite being only 5'10. He's a lefty who appears to have a nice stroke and good range, takes the ball to the basket well and finishes with either hand. Good job by the staff filling a big need.

The future is bright!
Love that this was an early target/offer by Nelson, his list of offers continued to grow, and HC was able to close the deal.
We also may be the beneficiary of a lack of opportunities for other programs to evaluate Luc due to COVID this Spring/Summer, which along with his offer list that continued to grow despite the circumstances, could mean Nelson found a great piece for the future of the program.
Kyrell Luc, Brimmer & May – Cut from a similar cloth, Luc is undersized but possesses a big game. In fact, he looks to be one of the most improved junior guards in New England to start the year. Saturday’s 31-point performance was just the latest example of the growth of his game. Always a high-level athlete, Luc isn’t just bouncy at the rim but quick to his spots off the dribble and able to create his own offense on demand.
Jave and Torey played together at times. If both Johnson and Luc deserve minutes, they most likely will get them. If Johnson has a solid freshman season, he probably would be initially at the top of the depth chart.
I cannot think of any HC player his size who could jump like that. Torey T. was probably as quick, but did not leap like Luc. Anthony Thompson was straight ahead quick, but I never saw him dunk. The most athletic player not named Jehyve was Eric Green, but he was 6’4”. Actually Drew Lowder was exceptionally quick, but I never saw him dunk. He was listed at 6’, but was not that tall.

The highlight film didn't show blazing acceleration like Torey had, but his leaping is amazing. Those dunks are not just awkward tries that barely go in at the end of his fingertips just to say he can dunk.
Reading posts here, I was starting to wonder about future recruits. This "get" is most reassuring! It was also nice that HC seems to have gotten the best of Fairfield. (I guess I still feel a bit bad that the. Stags seemed too have targeted our point guard last year.)
