Seton Hall lands 7-footer Romaro Gill

In a bit of a shock move, Seton Hall has landed a commitment from relatively unknown junior college prospect Romaro Gill.

A 7-foot tall forward from Vincennes (Ind.) junior college — the same school that former guard target Chris Darrington plays at — Gill has pledged to the Hall after an apparent visit a few weeks ago.

A native of Jamaica, there is next to nothing published on Gill by recruiting services and no YouTube clips except for a full game of Vincennes’ found here (Gill is #35) — this is a true Canarias Basketball Academy-like commitment for Seton Hall’s staff.

After playing sparing last season, Romaro averaged 5.1 ppg, 5.3 rpg, and 2.4 bpg as a sophomore.

With one scholarship left and no point guards on the roster following Jamari Wheeler‘s commitment to Penn State today days after an official to South Orange — the staff did not like the fit here — the Hall is still in the market for a point guard.

They are still monitoring USF graduate transfer Geno Thorpe while it seems likely they will turn up the heat on Patrick School lead guard Jordan Walker, who has recently received offers from Cal and Pitt.

For what it’s worth, Walker did like this tweet directed at me.

Elsewhere, it is thought that red shirt senior Rashed Anthony may be on his way out of South Orange — I postulated this idea on this site over a month ago. The big man hasn’t shown any noticeable progress during his time and appears set to graduate after sitting out his true freshman season.
