Gil St. Bernard’s (Gladstone, N.J.) junior point guard Jaren Sina has offers from Alabama, Cincinnati, Miami, Northwestern, Rutgers, Seton Hall, St. John’s, Virginia, and, most recently, Memphis.  Virginia Tech has entered the picture as well, but as of now no offer not has been extended.

“Virginia Tech came in later this high school season, but I hope to get down to Virginia Tech soon…maybe in the spring,” Sina said.

The 6’2″, 180-pound prospect adds:  “I’m looking at Virginia Tech.  I’m pretty interested.”

Sina, who originally committed to Alabama before de-committing last summer, says he is “pretty open” right now in the recruiting process.  He’ll head to Northwestern for an unofficial visit this weekend, and he says he “definitely” plans on visiting Virginia Tech.  Trips to Michigan and/or Butler are possibilities as well.

The Garden State standout is currently no. 54 on ESPN.com’s Super 60 rankings for the class of 2013.  He guided Gil St. Bernard’s, which is coached by his father Mergin, to a 26-3 record as a sophomore in 2010/2011.  He averaged 22 points and seven assists per game that season. In 2011/2012, he led the team to a 27-4 overall record, averaging 20 points and nine assists per contest.

“I would say I’m a good defender. I like to push the ball,” Sina said, describing his game in an earlier interview.  His father played collegiately at Seton Hall and Rhode Island before playing professionally overseas for 12 seasons.  “I like to get my teammates involved. I’m a good scorer and shooter, and I’m a good floor leader. I do shoot a decent amount of 3s, but I have a mid-range game too.”

Sina will play for Team Final on the AAU circuit this spring and summer.

“I’m excited about it,” Sina said of the upcoming AAU season.  “This will be a new team for me.  I’m excited.”
