Seton Hall commits Myles Carter and Veer Singh (not pictured) signed their letters of intent today, the first day of the spring signing period for high school seniors.

A 2015 power forward from Chicago’s St. Rita High School, Myles Carter pledged to Seton Hall last month over schools like DePaul, Memphis, VCU and Cleveland State.

Carter joins a three-deep class that includes already-signed shooting guard Dalton Soffer (Poway, Calif.) and wing Veer Singh of the New York Lightning and Thurgood Marshall (N.Y.). Singh also signed today, per a source.

“We are very excited to welcome Amarveer and Myles into our family,” Kevin Willard said this afternoon in a release. “They are both very talented and terrific young men coming from outstanding high schools and AAU programs who will fit in well on our team and will be able to contribute both on and off the court.”

“Veer is a highly skilled and talented wing and has developed into a dynamic playmaker,” Willard said. “He has a strong ability to shoot the basketball and is also a very good passer. He not only comes from a terrific high school basketball program, but he also played for a great AAU team in the New York Lightning.”

“Myles is a high-energy and talented big man with tremendous upside,” Willard said. “He has played at top tier programs at St. Rita’s and MeanStreets, and his experience competing at a high level will serve him well on this team and competing in the BIG EAST.”

The Hall have one scholarship remaining, which could hypothetically be used for an incoming junior college or graduate transfer, specifically at forward.

    Glad to see what Willard had to say about both guys. I think his comments about each player were correct. Carter is a guy who played on a pretty good high school team in Chicago, with St. Rita, that featured Kentucky commit Charles Matthews as well as, obviously another a player who is headed to Tulane, guard Kain Harris. While his stats from high school may not jump out to anyone (8 ppg 6 rpg 4 bpg) it likely was subdued some to the fact that he played with two D1 guards who likely commanded the ball quite a bit. But it is easy to see why Seton Hall is excited to have him. His athleticism, frame, and energy all come across when you watch his tape and lends one to believe that his best basketball is definitely ahead of him. Many times that phrase is used to describe a high school player, but in actuality they may have leveled off as far as the ability and potential is concerned. With Carter I think that phrase is, in fact, accurate. And I think the fact that programs such as VCU, Memphis, and DePaul were recruiting him validates his ability and athleticism to a degree. Each of those programs really place an emphasis on athletic big men, who could run the floor, and be effective on a up and down, fast paced, pressing type team.

    As for Singh, I didn’t get to see him play this season at Thurgood Marshall in NY but I did see a few of his games while he was at St. Peter’s in Jersey City. He could really shoot the basketball, as Willard pointed out, which should allow him to be an effective player in Willard’s system, as we all know how much he loves guys that can shoot it from the perimeter. What stood out to me for Singh, when seeing him play, is he had more athleticism than I initially thought, and his passing ability is certainly a strength as well. I’ll be curious to see if he plays some ‘4’ as well as the 3, which seems to be his natural position. I think Willard would love to have him play the 4 on occasion and be able to stretch the floor similar to Brandon Mobley. And I believe due to his athleticism he could be able to rebound at a decent rate despite the fact that he looks to have a relatively slender frame.
