As many of you may not know, I am Hakim Saintil from Roselle Catholic.
I am a senior point guard this year and I am undecided as to where I am going to college.
I would like to give a shoutout to Adam Zagoria for letting me do this blog of my season.
Right now my college list is St. Louis, Hofstra, San Francisco, Rider, LIU- Brooklyn, Quinnipiac and Duquesne. I will visit St. Louis Feb. 11.
I am looking to decide after my season. For right now in the season my team is in the middle of a very tough week. We played the Patrick School, Linden, and Walnut Hills from Ohio all within a span of five days. We beat Linden and the Patrick School and lost to Walnut Hills at the Flyin’ to the Hoop event.
I will be sure to keep you posted with everything that is happening.
