The official 120-man Reebok Breakout Classic roster was released this morning with about one dozen Seton Hall recruiting targets and plenty of other local talent listed. New Jersey schools have 15 players listed on the Breakout Classic roster, more than any other state.
Seton Hall has yet to officially instate Abraham Lincoln (N.Y.) head coach Dwayne "Tiny" Morton as Kevin Willard's third assistant, but it would make sense if that were completed by 5 p.m. today when the first July 'live period' officially begins so that Tiny can formally recruit for Seton Hall. Kyle Smyth is also expected to be bumped up to director of basketball operations, Fairleigh Dickinson assistant Grant Billmeier's old spot, first reported by Zach Braziller of The Post last week.
The Breakout Classic opens for drills at 2 p.m. today, but the first block of games doesn't begin until 5 p.m. when coaches will flood into Philadelphia University's gym. Here's a list of Seton Hall targets and other local talent on the event's roster:
