Following a long weekend on the recruiting trails, Seton Hall has offered an emerging Class of 2017 point guard.
Georgia native Collin Sexton picked up an offer from Seton Hall after a 30.6 ppg, 5 rpg showing over three games in Brooklyn at the Nike EYBL event.
The Southern Stampede and Pebblebrook High School (Ga.) product will surely attract more offers over the coming hours, days and months as he does his final tour on the AAU circuit. Edit: Oklahoma State and Texas Tech have offered in the hours after this post was published.
Here’s a snippet from Scout.com’s analysis of his game:
“At 6-foot-2, Collin Sexton has impressive physical features for a lead guard. He’s solidly built, with a lengthy set of arms. Sexton is extremely quick and has an explosive first step. He’s also an impressive all around athlete. Sexton stays in attack mode and is more of a new age, scoring lead guard than a true point. His quickness and nifty ball handling allow him to create space from defenders with ease.”
Sexton joins fellow 2017 lead guards like Trevon Duval (Advanced Prep, Tx.), Nate Pierre-Louis (St. Benedict’s Prep, N.J.), Nojel Eastern (Evanston, Ill.), Daron Russell (Imhotep Charter, Pa.) and Isaiah Washington (St. Raymond, N.Y.) that have been on the Hall’s radar.
Seton Hall hosts Delaware transfer Kory Holden on an unofficial visit Tuesday; he could potentially team up with any of those guards for two years in South Orange come 2017-18.
