Northwestern was not able to hang onto Class of 2013 point guard Jaren Sina.
The three-star prospect from Gladstone (N.J.) Gill St. Bernard announced today via Twitter that he has decided to play college basketball in his home state, at Seton Hall.
The one-time Wildcat signee picked the Pirates over Northwestern and Indiana. On Tuesday, Sina had narrowed his choices down to Northwestern, Indiana and Seton Hall after eliminating Alabama from consideration.
Northwestern head coach Chris Collins made an in-home visit to see Sina on Sunday. While a source close to the situation said that Collins' visit "went really well," it was not enough to sway him to remain a Wildcat.
Sina, the No. 121 prospect in the country, signed with Northwestern but re-opened his recruitment and was granted a release from his letter of intent after the Wildcats fired head coach Bill Carmody in March.
Seton Hall may have bolstered its case with Sina by hiring former Northwestern assistant Fred Hill to serve in the same capacity with the Pirates. Hill was Sina's primary recruiter for Northwestern under Carmody.
This is the third school to which Sina has committed in three years. He had previously committed to Alabama as a sophomore, before de-committing and choosing Northwestern last summer.
A source told WildcatReport that Northwestern is not heavily pursuing any other Class of 2013 targets. The Wildcats will likely hold onto the scholarship for 2014.
