Husson University in Bangor continues to fill its 2020 men’s basketball recruiting class.

The Eagles have announced a commitment from Jeremy Moronta of Brooklyn, New York.

Moronta is a 5-foot-9 guard who was instrumental in helping Transit Tech Career and Technical Education High School to a 20-4 record during the 2019-2020 season.

Transit Tech has a direct connection to Maine as the team is coached by Presque Isle native Ken Hafford.

“Jeremy is a quick combo guard who is very active,” Husson head coach Warren Caruso said. “He is involved in so many plays in a game, and uses his quickness incredibly well at both ends of the floor. We are excited to add Jeremy, he can do a lot of things on the floor.”

Moronta finished the season as Transit Tech’s leader in numerous statistical categories. He averaged 27 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocked shots per game.

Moronta, who wound up his career with 1,403 points, ranked sixth among scorers in the Public Schools Athletic League of New York City. He paced the PSAL Brooklyn A Division in points, rebounds and assists.

Moronta served as a team captain each of the last two seasons, during which Transit Tech put together a combined 41-5 record. He was named the team’s MVP and Defensive Player of the Year as a junior and senior.

His commitment to Husson places him in a recruiting class that also includes Parker Deprey of Caribou, Isaac Varney of Hermon and University of Southern Maine transfer Cam Wood of Winthrop.

Husson posted a 12-15 record this season en route to making its 35th straight appearance in the league tournament. The Eagles reached the North Atlantic Conference semifinals.

Husson has captured seven NAC men’s basketball championships in the last 12 years.
