This week's edition of the Seton Hall recruiting roundup is headlined by a set of impressive visitors that tripped to South Orange.
Seton Hall hosted 2014 shooting guard Rashard Figures (Hackensack, NJ) and 2013 forward Tyler Roberson (Roselle Catholic HS, NJ) on Wednesday. Figures subsequently visited Rhode Island and Connecticut after his trip to South Orange. Rashard has attracted a long list of schools that are interested in him. Rhode Island, Connecticut, Seton Hall, La Salle, George Mason, Cincinnati, Boston University and most recently Virginia have expressed interest in Rashard since June 15th. As expected, Figures enjoyed his visits to both Rhode Island and Connecticut. On Rhode Island: "It was fun. I toured the campus and the coaches were telling me what my role would be there." While in Storrs, Jim Calhoun pitched to Rashard about his future, "I had a lot of fun. Coach Calhoun told me if I keep working hard, could play for UConn one day."
The other visitor on Wednesday was Tyler Roberson. A stud in the Class of 2013, Tyler has offers from all sorts of high-majors including Kansas, Syracuse and Louisville. Roberson would obviously be a fantastic get for Seton Hall, for multiple reasons. After his visit to Seton Hall that lasted through Thursday, Tyler visited Rutgers yesterday.
Another pair of visitors were scheduled to set foot on campus this Thursday but their visits were apparently split up, as 2013 Reggie Cameron (Hudson Catholic HS, NJ) wound up visiting on Friday while Isaiah Lewis (Christ The King, NY) was on campus with Tyler Roberson on Thursday. Cameron has been on Seton Hall's radar for a long time, with a steady flow of interest. Conversely, interest in Lewis has appeared to spike over the last several weeks.
Reggie tweeted yesterday that "Shu was great today!" after returning home from his visit. Connecticut is the latest school to offer the forward with a deadly outside shot. Reggie will attend the 2012 Kevin Durant Skills Academy from June 24th-26th.
After his visit, Isaiah Lewis said that the "Visit was great, talked to players, coaches & Tyler Roberson was up there as well with me so it was fun." Isaiah told Zach Braziller of the New York Post that he wants to travel to Memphis next.
