The NY Post has compiled their All-City preseason first and second team selections of the city's elite high school players. Jayvaughn Pinkston (Bishop Loughlin), was selected as the pre-season player of the year. Pinkston, who recently announced he would be delaying his college committment until late signing period in the spring, has received interest from Tennessee, Seton Hall, St. Johns, Marquette and Villanova.
The chiseled 6-foot-6 Bishop Loughlin senior is considered the city’s top player and is one of the most highly touted forwards in the country. The seventh-ranked power forward in the national by Scout.com, Pinkston, who averaged 24.6 points per game last year, improved his shooting range during the summer and lists Villanova, St. John’s, Seton Hall and Tennessee, which recently received a commitment from Half Hallows Hills star Tobias Harris, among his favorites.
