Jaren Sina is going through the recruiting process again. He received his release from Northwestern on Wednesday and has interest pouring in from high major schools.

Jaren Sina is going through the recruiting process again.

The talented point guard out of Gladstone (N.J.) Gill St. Bernard's originally committed to Alabama. Then backed off his pledge in early October of 2011. After going through the process again, Sina settled on Northwestern.

Last week Bill Carmody was let go and Sina was in limbo once again. Sina asked for his release and received it on Wednesday.

"It's tough," Sina said about the situation.

"Obviously coach Carmody got fired at Northwestern," he added. "I'm still going to wait and see who they hire over there and I'll look at Northwestern as an option. I just actually received my release yesterday from Northwestern. It's been a little crazy."

At this point, Sina seems a little overwhelmed with the interest pouring in.

"The amount of schools that have called, it's been kind of nuts," Sina said. "I'm just going to let it all cool down. I just have to be patient and look it through."

Sina said a bunch of SEC schools have made contact with him.

"It's been a long list," Sina said. "A lot of the SEC has pretty much called. I know Texas A&M, Arkansas, Missouri, Alabama and a bunch of SEC schools are continuing to call my AAU coach. I'm going to get back to these guys in the next couple days."

"I know Indiana called," Sina added. "West Virginia, Clemson, Seton Hall and a lot of schools. It's been busy and hectic."

Sina said there are two schools he knows he wants to visit.

"Definitely Alabama and probably Seton Hall because they are local," Sina said. "With the rest of them I'm going to have to continue to talk to coaches and get back to a lot of people."

Despite the amount of interest, Sina said he wants to take his time and look for the right fit.

"There are a lot of schools interested, but at the same time I have to make sure that I go to a place that has a plan for me and that I'm actually needed," he said. "A lot of schools probably have scholarships but I have to make sure it's the right fit."
