Seton Hall has an oral commitment from 6-11, 340-pound center Melvyn Oliver, but no Letter of Intent as of yet.
Oliver’s coach, Victor Evans, said there was a mixup on Seton Hall’s end in sending the LOI to Oliver at Mississippi Elite Christian Academy.
“I don’t know what address they sent it to because I never got it so they sent it back out,” Evans said Tuesday by phone.
“As soon as I get it, I’ll let you know. We should have it tomorrow (Wednesday). We’re still waiting on the Letter of Intent, that’s all we’re waiting on. I’m praying that it’s here tomorrow because I want to get this wrapped up.”
