No. 40 Sr SG Jared Rhoden Commits To Seton Hall

ESPN No. 40 ranked high school senior shooting guard Jared Rhoden has committed to Seton Hall.

 

The 6-6 swingman out of Our Savior Lutheran HS (Bronx, NY) led his Nike EYBL New York Lightning team in scoring and rebounding this summer, averaging 14.4 points and 5.5 rebounds.

 

“I chose Seton Hall because they had best balance in what I was looking for as a student-athlete,” Rhoden told Zagsblog. “I would be able to play in the Big East Conference against the best talent in the country as well as with my fellow teammates who would get me better.”

 

“Seton Hall also has an amazing business school which is something I’ve always wanted to major in,” added Rhoden. “Seton Hall in all just felt like home. Also being able to stay home and play in front of my family almost every game was important as well.”

 

Lightning director Dana Dingle said Rhoden is an athletic scorer.

 

“Jared is wired to score,” said Dingle on The 4 Quarters Podcast. “He’s 6-6 long, lanky with a 7-foot wing span. He can shoot the three ball. Has a great mid-range, one-two dribble-pullup, can score in the mid post.”

 

“And he can rebound the ball,” Dingle added. “ He plays with a high motor. He’s relatively unknown outside of Long Island, but the rest of the country really got a chance to see his ability to score against anybody [in the Nike EYBL].”

 

The Pirates beat out the likes of Wichita State, Penn State, and St. Louis to land Rhoden.

 

At Seton Hall, Rhoden will join fellow 2018 recruits No. 29 SG Anthony Nelson — his EYBL New York Lightning AAU teammate — and 6-10 center Darnell Brodie out of Montverde Academy.
