Northeast recruiting news and notes


It’s been a busy couple of weeks since we last updated the Northeast region recruiting news and notes. In that time, 2013 prospects Jaren Sina (Seton Hall), Daquein McNeil (Minnesota), Jamel Artis (Pittsburgh), Devin Wilson (Virginia Tech), Rashad Andrews (Southern), Aaron Parks (Cal St. Northridge) and Iverson Fleming (LIU) all came off the board during a heavy recruiting period in the region.

We also appear to be inching closer to a decision from Christ the King (N.Y.) guard Jon Severe, who recently backed off his May 22nd decision date while, apparently trimming his list to Fordham, Pittsburgh, Wake Forest and West Virginia.

Two recently decommitted prospects are now seeing their recruitment significantly pick up steam. South Kent (Conn.) senior Shane Rector, who was previously committed to Rutgers, visited Missouri recently, while one-time George Washington pledge Nigel Johnson (Upper Marlboro, Md./Riverdale Baptist), picked up an offer from Kansas State.

Here’s a look at the other recruiting activity going on in the Northeast:
