If the Twitter page belonging to Flint Powers’ junior Javontae Hawkins is any indication, the 6-5 junior guard prospect is on his way out of Flint. There’s nothing on there about any other schools, though another Twitter page @alleyesonuhoops has him going to Quality Education Academy in North Carolina for his senior season — that, of course, is not substantiated.
This would be quite a blow to Flint Powers and to the Flint area’s basketball community, if indeed it comes to fruition. Hawkins really came into his own in the second half of his junior season before his team fell short against DCD in the state quarterfinals.
I really hope this is just some youthful exuberance. I have no idea why a player with more D-1 offers than he could fit in a backpack would leave a winning program for one season.
