Days after it was announced that Seton Hall is one of four schools being considered by DMV-area guard Alani Moore, the Hall has made the final list of two local guards in Bryce Aiken and Myles Powell.

A rising senior at the Patrick School (N.J.), Bryce Aiken is down to Harvard, Seton Hall, Miami (Fla.), USC, Illinois and Michigan and has set up officials for a few already.

A former teammate of current Pirate big man Angel Delgado, Aiken spoke to Pat Lawless about each of his finalists. Here’s what he said about the hometown school:

“Coach Willard, Coach Shaheen and Coach Hill have all done a terrific job of recruiting me,” he said. “I’ve been in contact with them for a good amount of time and we’ve built a good relationship. Staying there would be like staying home and my family would have the chance to see me. The system they play would benefit myself with the way they play their point guards. They have a system and coaching staff that will push me to get better and better.”

Bryce added that Harvard and Seton Hall are recruiting him the hardest and that he’ll probably make a final decision in October.

As for former Trenton Catholic Academy star Myles Powell, who is now at South Kent (Conn.), Seton Hall is joined by UConn, VCU, Pittsburgh and DePaul on his respective list.

No visits have been set yet, but the strong 6-2 guard will surely give South Orange another look.

In other news, Seton Hall’s non-conference visit to Rutgers on Saturday, December 5th is set for a noon tip and will be aired on ESPN News. While not an NFL Sunday, December 5th is the date of the Big Ten football Championship game (among other games) and ESPN News is not exactly a big draw, but a vast improvement for attending media and fans when compared to the Sunday evening tip at the RAC two seasons ago.
