Adam Zagoria covers basketball at all levels. He is the author of two books and an award-winning journalist whose articles have appeared in ESPN The Magazine, SLAM, Sheridan Hoops, Sports Illustrated, Basketball Times and in newspapers nationwide.
Sean Grennan, a 6-foot-2, 170-pound point guard from Toms River (NJ) Monsignor Donovan, has verbally committed to Seton Hall for 2011.
Grennan initially committed to Davidson last summer, but was denied academic acceptance in September, according to Joe Fagan, his coach with the New Jersey Shore Shots.
Fagan said La Salle, Charlotte, St. Louis and Fordham were also recently involved.
“He’s a combo [guard] but I think he’ll be a one at the next level,” Fagan said.
“Sean is a high IQ guy. He really knows the game, really understands how to play. A multi-skilled guy, can shoot, pass the ball.
“Like every kid going to the Big East, he’s gonna have to get a little bit stronger. He’s athletic. He’ll go up and dunk it with two hands.”
Grennan joins Aaron Cosby, Haralds Karlis and Freddie Wilson in head coach Kevin Willard’s first recruiting class.
