Former Seton Hall basketball player Jaren Sina has committed to play at George Washington University starting in the fall, according to multiple reports.
Sina also considered Michigan, Stanford, Boston College, South Carolina, Binghamton and Rhode Island, among others.
The 6-foot, 2-inch guard, who averaged 7.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists, will ultimately have to sit a year due to NCAA transfer regulations unless he obtains a waiver.
“I have made a decision and I will be playing for Coach Mike Lonergran at George Washington University,” Sina said in a text to SNY.tv’s Adam Zagoria.
“This has been a tough couple of months, but I’m happy my family and I came to this decision,” Sina told the Asbury Park Press’ Jerry Carino over the phone. “I’m happy I can go to a place where the culture fits me as both a basketball player and a student-athlete.”
George Washington went 23-13 on the season while earning an NIT berth. One of those losses came at the hands of Seton Hall back in November.
“I have a good opportunity to contribute from the point guard position, so that’s obviously a factor” Sina said. “When you combine that with the school itself, it’s a home run for me.”
