Seton Hall lands top-100 guard Myles Powell

Seton Hall landed a commitment from top-100 guard Myles Powell on Saturday during his official visit to the school’s South Orange, New Jersey campus.

If you recall my post from earlier this week, I hinted that Seton Hall’s coaching staff had a pretty good chance at landing Myles Powell (South Kent, Conn.) during his official visit that spanned from Thursday to today.

The staff has done just that by beating out UConn, VCU, DePaul and Pittsburgh.

When was the last time they landed such a highly-rated prospect during an official visit?

A former Trenton Catholic Academy product, Myles committed while the Hall was also hosting top-100 guard Bryce Aiken (Patrick School, N.J.), who they are still very much in play with.

But for now, Seton Hall has filled their final immediately open scholarship for the Class of 2016 with the No. 100 (Rivals)/No. 86 (247Sports) rated prospect, who NJ Playaz director Jimmy Salmon says is the “best shooter in the country period.”
