"We are ecstatic to have T.J.Sorrentine join inRecruit,” said former NBA player and inRecruit co-founder Malik Allen. “Not only is T.J.a terrific young college coach, but he is also one of the best high school basketball players to ever come out of the state of Rhode Island. He also had an outstanding college career at Vermont and hit an epic shot in the 2005 NCAA Tournament that I will never forget.”

About T.J. Sorrentine: T.J. Sorrentine starred at point guard for St. Raphael Academy High School (RI) where he was named the Rhode Island Player of the Year by both Gatorade & USA Today in 2000 after leading St. Raphael's to back-to-back state titles.

Sorrentine was a two-year captain, America East Rookie of the Year and Player of the Year, a three-time First Team All-conference player and an Honorable Mention All-American.

In 2004-05, T.J. led Vermont to its most historic season in school history, as he helped Vermont post a school-record 25 wins, winning the America East regular season and conference titles for its third-straight NCAA appearance, just the third team in America East history to win three or more consecutive conference tournament titles.As a 13-seed in the 2005 NCAA Tournament, Vermont drew Big East Champion Syracuse in the first round. Sorrentine scored 17 points, including five three-point field goals, one which will remain entrenched in NCAA Tournament lore, as Sorrentine nailed a deep three-pointer with 1:10 left in overtime to put Vermont ahead 59-55 in a 60-57 win. During the game, television commentator Gus Johnson commented that "Sorrentine hit that one from the parking lot."
