Chris Silva Enjoys Seton Hall, Rhode Island Up Next
Chris Silva, the 6-foot-9 2015 power forward from Roselle Catholic, enjoyed his official visit to Seton Hall this week and will trip to Rhode Island next.
“[It was] a lot of fun combined with hard work,” Silva told SNY.tv by text.
He said Pirates coach Kevin Willard said “some nice and good things involving my game like playing time and how I am going to fit and the work I am going to have to put in.”
Silva is friendly with current Seton Hall freshman Angel Delgado and added that he “knows almost everybody” on the team.
Silva will trip to Rhode Island Sept. 3-4 and South Carolina Sept. 12-14. He will also visit Kansas State, RC coach Dave Boff told SNY.tv.
Silva recently cut his list to those four plus Villanova. Boff said Silva is targeting a decision in September.
“I think Chris will make a decision by late September,” Boff said. “He’s excited to go through this process and find the school that is the best fit.
“His upside/potential is through the roof and his best basketball is ahead of him. When you think about where his game was and that this is his third year of organized basketball, he can end up as a very special player.”
