Seton Hall has picked up its fourth commitment of the 2011 class. The 6'2'', 170 pound guard, Sean Grennan, from Monsignor Donovan (NJ) accepted an offer from Seton Hall with open arms. Grennan will be the fourth guard of the 2011 class that already features Haralds Karlis, Aaron Cosby and Freddie Wilson.
Sean Grennan had originally committed to Davidson earlier this year, but was "denied academic acceptance". Much like Freddie Wilson, Grennan was also being targeted by Atlantic-10 schools such as La Salle, Charlotte, and St. Louis.
Grennan is said to be crafty, quick, a nice shooter and have a high basketball IQ. These attributes seem to be define a Kevin Willard type player. In addition, Grennan, like Lekan Ajayi, had been quoted that he really wanted to come to Seton Hall. If the player fits Willard's mold, and wants to wear Pirate Blue, SIGN HIM UP.
"I just think it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,'' Grennan said. "I really want to take on the challenge and do the best I can with it. There's really no downside with it. Outside of basketball, the school itself is great. The arena is also one of the nicest in the country and it's close, so I think it all works out.''
The original plan was that Seton Hall was only going to sign three guards, but since Jeremy Hazell decided to come back instead of redshirt, Kevin Willard & staff closed in on Grennan, who already really liked Seton Hall. The interest just needed to be mutual, which materialized today.
The guard situation will likely shape up to be Karlis, Cosby, Theodore, Wilson and Grennan for next season. I would expect Cosby and Karlis to play the 2, with Karlis possibly seeing time at the 3. Wilson and Grennan will back up Theodore, with one of them possibly red-shirting.
