Trenton Catholic Lead Guard Has D-1 Interest

Reporter Mike Sullivan profiles a player he saw quite a bit over the summer in New Jersey guard Frantz Massenat ...

Frantz Massenat, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound lead guard from Trenton Catholic High School in Trenton, New Jersey, was one of the steady players on Matt Paul's NJABC AAU team over the summer.

"Frantz is the true definition of a lead guard," said Paul. (He) is a pass first player. I have been pushing him to be more aggressive on the offensive end because he CAN score the ball, and in July he did just that. "

The NJABC 16 and under team competed down in Orlando at Disney World. Massenat did a nice job in finding open teammates as well as scoring when needed.

"Princeton, Fordham, Rider, LaSalle, St. Joe's, Temple, and Massachusetts are the front runners," said Paul.

The head coach added: "I have heard from Big East schools who are very interested in Frantz, as well as some Big Ten and ACC schools. As a 6'3" lead guard high major division one schools are intrigued by his size, court vision and passing, and ability to get his teammates good shots."

Paul said his guard is open in his recruiting process. But he wouldn't be surprised if he ended up at a school based on "educational value."

"He is very focused on education and his future outside of basketball," said Paul.

Frantz GPA is around 3.4. He has taken an unofficial visit to Princeton.

He is considering visits to Fordham, UMass, Temple, LaSalle and St. Joe's this Fall.
