Jim Boeheim's son heading to prep school, mulls playing for dad

By

Jimmy Boeheim, the oldest son of Syracuse Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim, is expected to enroll in New Hampton Prep in New Hampshire, he told Syracuse.com.

Jimmy, who averaged 23.3 points per game for Jamesville-DeWitt in suburban Syracuse, is hoping a year of prep school will help provide a better opportunity to play in college. New Hampton is the same school that current Syracuse freshman Tyler Lydon went to last season.

He told Syracuse.com that playing for his dad would be a “cool experience,” but said “he’s keeping an open mind to see what happens.”

“I’m looking to play,” he said, adding that his “dream” was to play Division I basketball. “We’ll see where I can do that.”

Boeheim’s daughter, Jamie, was part of Jamesville-DeWitt’s Class A state title team this season.
