Bryce Aiken picks Harvard over Seton Hall

Top-100 guard Bryce Aiken has committed to Harvard over Seton Hall and Miami.

From what I heard, the Patrick School (N.J.) lead guard chose Harvard directly over Seton Hall, with the Hurricanes coming in third.

The Pirates were long-time recruiters of Aiken, dating back to his sophomore year at the Patrick School. Bryce had taken in quite a few games live, was at last season’s Midnight Madness and officially visited campus with Myles Powell last month.

Regardless of the current scholarship situation, the Hall has just one player on their current depth chart in Kansas State transfer Jevon Thomas who is capable of playing big minutes at the point in 2016-17 if Isaiah Whitehead leaves the team to play professionally next spring.

Aiken would have been Seton Hall’s second top-100 guard to commit in the Class of 2016 following two-guard Myles Powell’s pledge a few weeks ago.
