Four-star point guard Jaren Sina, a Top-100 prospect, will visit Northwestern's campus this weekend.

­"I think it's a great program," said Sina of Northwestern. "I'm really excited to get out there and take a look at the school. It's a Big Ten school, great conference, and definitely one of the schools I'm really considering."

The Gladstone, New Jersey native holds offers from Northwestern, Alabama, Cincinnati, Memphis, Miami, Rutgers, Saint John's, and Virginia, among others.

Sina's first offer came from Rutgers when Fred Hill, now an assistant coach at NU, served as head coach. The two have built a strong relationship.

"He's a guy I have a lot of trust for and a lot respect for," Sina said of Hill. "He's the first coach that recruited me and offered me a scholarship. I'm really excited to go down there this wekened and am really excited to be there."

Hill along with head coach Bill Carmody have led Sina to strong interest in Northwestern. He is excited about the academics which NU offers, but likes what the basketball program offers, too.

"They're in a great conference, the Big Ten is one of the best, if not the best," said Sina. "Northwestern is on the rise. They've got a lot of great recruits coming in. They were a bubble team this year. I think the future is bright for them."

During the visit, Sina will meet with the coaching staff and players, then tour campus and the basketball facilities.

"I'm just excited to get out there," he said. "I haven't taken too many visits this spring. I haven't been to Chicago, it would be great to see Chicago, the school, the gym, the athletic center, the players, and spend some time with the coaches. I think it will be great."
