2016 Guard Alkins Adds Cincinnati, Seton Hall Offers
Rawle Alkins, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Christ the King, added offers this week from Cincinnati and Seton Hall after those schools watched him in Las Vegas, coach Joe Arbitello confirmed to SNY.tv.
Villanova offered Alkins a month ago and Fordham was the first to offer in April.
“He has great upside,” Arbitello told SNY.tv. “He spent the summer getting his grades together, working out and working camp. He is the most complete sophomore I’ve ever coached.”
Alkins will be on display in the Big Strick Classick Aug. 10 at the Gauchos Gym, when he plays on the NYC East team alongside Syracuse pledge Chris McCullough, Terry Larrier, Isaiah Briscoe, Isaiah Whitehead, Khadeen Carrington and others.
