Rising seniors continue to narrow down the schools they are considering ahead of their final high school season with De’Vondre Perry and Daron Russell both including Seton Hall on their final lists.
Imhotep Charter (Pa.) point guard Daron Russell is considering the Hall alongside SMU, Grand Canyon, La Salle, Rhode Island and Western Kentucky.
The Philly floor general joins Isaiah Washington, Trevon Duval, Nate Pierre-Louis, Matt Coleman and Nojel Eastern as lead guards still in the mix to join up with Myles Cale as part of the Hall’s 2017 recruiting class.
The two-guard has publicly displayed his interest in Russell joining up with him.

In addition to Virginia Tech, Temple, USC and Kansas State, Seton Hall has made the final list of DMV-area forward De’Vondre Perry.
Being recruited by Grant Billmeier, Perry is perhaps in the good graces of Virginia Tech as the Hokies have set up an in-home visit with the small forward to go along with a visit to campus; Temple will also host him on an official.
Perry is perhaps lower on the priority list with Seton Hall short on scholarships to give out and guys like Desi Rodriguez, Veer Singh and Ish Sanogo all in the fold as capable starters at the three in 2017-18.
In related news, the Pirates’ staff has done their research and is interested in 2017 center Malik Ondigo of Putnam Science Academy (Conn.).
Doing a prep year in Connecticut after moving east from Arizona, Ondigo has received a spike of interest, mostly from West Coast schools, that has yielded offers from Colorado, Purdue, Texas Tech, Washington State and a handful of others.
It will be interesting to see how high Malik’s stock rises as Seton Hall could certainly benefit from adding a true center as part of their 2017 class.
