St. John's Jakubowski signs with BGSU basketball

St. John's Joe Jakubowski, a recent graduate of St. John's, signed a letter of

intent to play basketball at Bowling Green State University

under first-year coach Louis Orr.

Jakubowski had originally signed with Rice, but when Owls coach Willis

Wilson began linking himself to other job openings, Jakubowski asked for

and was granted a release.

"It sounded like the program was a little unstable, so that kind of got

things going," said Ed Heintschel, St. John's coach. "BG, with

a new situation, and [Joe] has a brother at BG, so it was kind of a

natural move for him."

Jakubowski will be eligible for the upcoming season and will play point

guard, an area of need for the Falcons.

Jakubowski is the Falcons' second signing since Orr took over the

program in early April. The other is Cameron Madlock, a 6-foot-8 forward

from Wisconsin.
