Still without a commitment from a Class of 2015 recruit, Seton Hall has made the final three of local guard Desure Buie (Wings Academy, N.Y.).

As top point guard Isaiah Briscoe sets his sights on Missouri, St. John's, Kentucky, and UConn, Buie has emerged as a local floor general option from New York City's Wings Academy. While playing AAU ball for the NY Lightning this summer, Buie's pass-first offensive traits and ball thief potential on defense were recognized at the Pitt Jam Fest and the Ty Lawson Camp. Desure averaged 7 ppg and 4.3 apg for the NY Lightning on the EYBL circuit.
Buie was reportedly offered by Seton Hall after unofficially visiting their campus in April of 2013. More recently, Hofstra, Manhattan, and Seton Hall all watched the Wings Academy product work out in early September. All seven recruiting analysts that have submitted Crystal Ball predictions on 247Sports.com have picked Manhattan as Buie's future school.
In other 2015 recruiting news, Shaheen Holloway and Tiny Morton watched Maths, Civics, and Sciences' (Pa.) shooting guard Samir Doughty work out on Thursday, but did not extend an offer. The staff is expected to watch 2015 forward Pierfrancesco Oliva (Bergen Catholic, Pa.) this week.
