Keen to build on their top-15 incoming recruiting class, Seton Hall's coaching staff was scouting targets all over North Jersey on Tuesday in search of their next commitment.
In the morning, Kevin Willard and assistant coach Fred Hill were at St. Peter's Prep (N.J.) to watch a trio of underclassmen in 2016s Amarveer Singh and Kaleb Bishop and 2017 Nate Pierre-Louis. Singh and Pierre-Louis, the latter of which was offered by Seton Hall in seventh grade, were already on the Pirates' radar, but Kaleb Bishop is a newcomer. Bishop holds an offer from Fordham according to VerbalCommits.com.
In the afternoon and at night, the coaching staff covered all bases by watching Roselle Catholic's open gym, and St. Joe's Breein Tyree and Ewing's Trey Lowe work out. According to Adam Zagoria Isaiah Briscoe was not at RC's open gym, but Seton Hall watched 2015 power forward Chris Silva and 2016 Asante Gist if he was present. Tyree is a new target with rising stock after a solid sophomore season that included double figure scoring in the Non-Public A state final and two Tournament of Champions games, all of which St. Joe's won. Tyree currently holds offers from Richmond, Davidson, Rutgers, and other mid-major schools and was also watched by several other high-majors yesterday.
Last but not least, Seton Hall, Villanova, and Temple watched the long high-scoring guard Trey Lowe work out last night. Lowe, who is expected to decide during the summer, holds offers from Seton Hall and Temple while Villanova is actively recruiting the Ewing (N.J.) standout hard. Temple has also hounded Lowe on the recruiting trails and are another contender for his services.
Monday was nearly as active as Tuesday with Seton Hall conducting an in-home visit (Willard, Shaheen Holloway, Grant Billmeier) with highly sought after 2015 forward Jessie Govan (Wings Academy, N.Y.). The coaching staff also watched the workout of 2015 Jonathan Nwankwo (Monsignor Scanlan, N.Y.), a junior forward that was offered by Seton Hall in early March.
This flurry of recruiting news is due to the current NCAA 'recruiting period' which ends at the end of today. A 'quiet period' starts tomorrow and runs until July 5th (with two exceptions during this period) when the AAU live periods start. During a quiet period, coaches may not evaluate talent in the form of workouts and games but are allowed to host recruits for visits on campus, so expect some of those.
