Sina has options

Things are going well this season for Jaren Sina, and now the four-star point guard is preparing for a visit to ACC country.

A one time commitment to the University of Alabama, Jaren Sina has now opened things up. The class of 2013 floor general definitely has no shortage of options. His Gladstone (NJ) Gil St. Bernard's team has played one of the toughest schedules in the country and Sina has shined against that top competition.

After a big win at the Cancer Research Classic in which Sina was unguardable for much of the fourth quarter and overtime, he said that the early season experiences helped his team in crunch time.

"It was great for us," said Sina. "We had some tough losses down at City of Palms, but I think it helped this team. We now have some good experiences, and we are getting better."

About his own play, Sina said, "I, myself, I was in a slump, but I have been doing of job of moving the ball and then knocking down some shots."

When it comes to his recruitment, Sina says his list is a long one.

"As of right now I am looking at several Big East, Big Ten, SEC, and ACC schools," said Sina. "The list is extremely long. Seton Hall was one of my top schools, but now that they got Aquille Carr they are off my list, but I am just extremely wide open and still looking around."

Up next for Sina is a trip to Virginia where he will see what Tony Bennett and his coaching staff has to offer.

"I am building a good relationship with Coach Bennett right now," Sina explained. "I know it is a great academic school and the campus is great. Also the ACC is a great conference and I think my game might fit well there. I want to check it out on the visit and I think it could be a good look for me."

A one time commitment to Alabama, Sina says that the Crimson Tide still remain very high on his list.

"Right now with Alabama the relationship with the coaches is great," said Sina. "They are still pretty high up on the list. There is still a very good chance I go back there and I have a lot of interest in them."

Another visit to Northwestern could happen before the end of the year, but nothing is set in stone for Sina, and he plans to make most of his trips in the spring.

When on the visits Sina has a clear idea of what he will be looking for in a school.

"Definitely I am just looking for a place where I comfortable with the system and a good academic school," said Sina. "Also I would like to go to a school in a good conference where I have a good relationship with the coaches."

Currently Sina is the No. 58 ranked player in the country and the No. 13 point guard.
