Dozen local recruits expected for Seton Hall – Xavier

Connect with

Prudential Center will be packed to the tune of 9,800 Seton Hall fans and the two rows behind the home team’s bench will be equally crammed as the Hall’s coaching staff has collected an impressive bunch of recruits — including 2016 signee Myles Powell — to attend their final home game of the season.

Full list:

    Love to see this for today before I leave for the Xavier game. I thought the Providence game was the first game I saw the entire middle sections full this season. Today, apparently, will be loud. Glad to see recruits coming for this one.

  • Mosleyman

    Does anyone know if we are still involved with Taurean Thompson? This would seem like a perfect game for him to attend if we are.

    • Chris McManus

      Was reported he was down to Providence, Georgetown, Seton Hall and Syracuse recently, but that right before Kansas offered. Then, unsurprisingly, a report came out that he hadn’t cut his list.

      He’s up at Brewster Academy in NH, so not exactly a 20 minute drive anymore.
