Talented Scoring Guard To Return To OSNA

Reporter Mike Sullivan has story on scoring guard Gerardo Suerno ...

Gerardo Suero, a talented scoring guard from Our Savior New American in Centereach, New York, is expected to return for his senior season to the Long Island based school, according to assistant coach Eric Jaklitsch.

Suero, who did play at an AAU event at St. John's University in June, didn't play much for the New York Elite program during the summer. "He went home," said Jaklitsch. "But he is expected back in school when it starts."

School starts here in the New York area after Labor Day weekend. Suero has the ability to score from anywhere on the court. He can attack the lane and drop in floaters. As he becomes stronger, he should be able to finish more effectively around the basket.

Suero has nice size at 6-foot-4. He weighs around 180 pounds. A native of the Dominican Republic, Suero has never listed a leader in his recruiting process. "He's open," said Jaklitsch.

Previous schools of interest included St. John's University and Pittsburgh. But it will be this season that will likely determine the level and seriousness of interest from division one college basketball programs.

For now, Suero is well rested at home. In a couple of weeks, it's back to school and a chance for him to earn a scholarship to a division one program.
