6-2 PG Jaren Sina decided last month to transfer from Seton Hall after nearly two seasons with the Pirates. It won't take Sina long to find a new home because several major programs have already moved in on him, including USC.
"I'm just figuring things out. Lots of schools are getting involved every day," Sina said. "I just got released last weekend. I'm building relationships with the coaches."
One of those coaches is USC's Frank Martin, whom Sina expects meet in person Sunday or Monday. He's looking forward to learning more about Martin and his program.
"The program is headed in the right direction and he's doing a great job there," Sina said. "They're getting big recruits and there's a lot of attention drawn to the place. It's in a great conference and is a high level of basketball."
Never miss a local story.
Sina said Michigan, Boston College and several other ACC, Big 10 and SEC schools have reached out to him. He's far from a decision and has no early favorite.
"The moment I find a place I feel the most comfortable and find an opportunity to help the team win, I'll make the decision at that time," he said.
And he's not concerned about having to sit out next season wherever he goes: "It's just another year to work on my game and get better."
Sina is a business and journalism major and is interested in a career in broadcasting.
He was averaging 7 points and 3 assists per game this season when he left the team.
"I'm a knockdown shooter and can shoot off the bounce," Sina said. "I'm a high IQ guy, team leader and a good passer."
Sina is a native of Jefferson, N.J.
