Kevin Willard has snagged his second 2015 commitment.

6-foot-7 Thurgood Marshall (N.Y.) wing Amarveer Singh has pledged his future to Seton Hall and will reclassify from 2016 to 2015. The news was first reported by Adam Zagoria.

Singh was originally offered by Seton Hall way back in September of 2013 and had been linked to the Pirates several times since. He attended last year's Villanova game, was watched by Kevin Willard and Fred Hill last spring and was at this season's Midnight Madness, exhibition game against Caldwell, and the upset of Villanova in January.

I had heard strong rumors that Singh was likely to commit to Seton Hall as far back as January after he took in the game against Villanova.

Previously at St. Peter's Prep (N.J.) and briefly at Cardinal Hayes (N.Y.), Singh's decision to reclassify to 2015 gives a big boost to Seton Hall's recruiting class, which had three open spots prior to his commitment. The wing joins signed 6-foot-5 shooting guard Dalton Soffer (Poway, Calif.) to comprise a two-man class. Soffer has scored 27, 26 and 26 points over his last three games.

According to various outlets, Temple, South Florida, Virginia, Rutgers, Penn State, Cincinnati, Fordham, Oregon State and others had offered Singh, who is a 3-star recruit according to 247Sports.com and Rivals.
