Gill St. Bernard's Sina picks Northwestern
Gill St. Bernard's point guard Jaren Sina, one of the most coveted high school basketball recruits in the country, verbally committed to Northwestern on Monday.
The 6-foot-2 sharpshooter chose Northwestern over Alabama, a school to which he originally committed as a sophomore. He opened up his recruiting again in October, but still kept Alabama in the running.
For several months, Seton Hall entered the picture as a possible landing spot, but once Baltimore-based point guard Aquille Carr signed with the Pirates, Sina narrowed his list once again.
Sina, who helped Gill St. Bernard's finish No. 6 in the MSG Varsity New Jersey power rankings in 2011-12, averaged 20 points and 8.4 assists as a junior.
Alongside Bucknell-bound center Dominic Hoffman and Dartmouth recruit Alex Mitola, Sina guided the Knights to a 27-4 campaign that ended in the South Non-Public B title game in March.
