AKRON, Ohio — Jaren Sina made a name for himself while playing at tiny Gill St. Bernard’s High School in Gladstone, N.J.
From that launching pad, the 6-foot-2 2013 point guard committed to Alabama last season and led his team deep into the New Jersey North Non-Public B playoffs before losing to perennial power St. Patrick.
Now Sina is on the biggest recruiting stage of the summer, competing at the LeBron James Skills Academy, where he’s joined by two St. Patrick players, big men Dakari Johnson and Austin Colbert.
In this interview, Sina talks about his experiences at the camp and his efforts to aid the victims of the tornado in Alabama. Read more about it in this story.
