Seton Hall one of four schools recruiting Shamorie Ponds the hardest

Add Thomas Jefferson (N.Y.) guard Shamorie Ponds to the list of local guards that have said Seton Hall is at the forefront of their recruitment.

2016 Patrick School (N.J.) guard Bryce Aiken was the first to say that Seton Hall was among those coming after him the hardest. Then came Benjamin Cardozo (N.Y.) guard Ray Salnave, whose high school coach said the same regarding Seton Hall.

Now, another local 2016 guard is making the Hall’s rabid interest in him known.

Shamore Ponds, who was “officially” offered by Seton Hall ten days ago and was scheduled to visit their campus last week, is a consensus four-star recruit according to ESPN, Rivals (No. 99) and 247Sports.com (No. 61).

At most, only Khadeen Carrington, Isaiah Whitehead and incoming freshman Dalton Soffer are in the fold for Seton Hall’s backcourt in 2016-17, so there is plenty of playing time to sell in South Orange and quite a few highly-rated local recruits that are in the coaching staff’s crosshairs are listening.
