Indiana, Purdue and Georgia Tech interested in Jaren Sina


Indiana, Purdue and Georgia Tech have reached out to 2013 PG Jaren Sina who was recently released from his Letter of Intent by Northwestern   after the firing of Northwestern Head Coach Bill Carmody this past Saturday.


The 6-foot-2, 190-pound point guard from Gill St. Bernard's School (NJ) was ranked in the top 25 in the nation among point guards by most recruiting services. He is also considered to be one of the highest rated prospects in Northwestern’s history. As a sophomore he gave a verbal commitment to Alabama but decided against it late last year. Sina also seriously considered Seton Hall, Miami, Memphis and Pittsburgh before committing to Northwestern. It was speculated that Sina would ask for a release from his National Letter of Intent after comments his father Mergin Sina made last week to the Chicago Sun Times   regarding rumors of Carmody’s possible dismissal. Northwestern Athletic Director James J. Phillips flew out to New Jersey to visit the Sinas on Monday March 25th to discuss matters. Mergin Sina told the Jefferson Patch (NJ)   on Tuesday, March 19th "The first thing [Phillips] said in our conversation was he understood this was going to change some things and he understood we were disappointed, and if it comes out that we like to explore other options they weren't going to hinder it," said Mergin Sina, who coached his son at Gill St. Bernard's School in New Jersey. "I thought that was a very professional thing. At the end of the day, you don't want someone at your school who doesn't want to be there”. Mergin Sina said they haven't looked into any other schools and would wait on Northwestern to make a coaching hire before making any decisions however Jaren Sina recently told SNYtv   that he “might visit” Seton Hall and Alabama.  Sina averaged 21.3 points during his senior season and finished with more than 2,100 points and 900 assists in his career.
