  • Mustapha Heron Reopens Recruitment, Will Still Consider Pitt

    7-24-11-AAU-NY-Gauchos-vs-M_reasonably_smallMustapha Heron, a 6-foot-5 2016 combo guard from Waterbury (CT) Sacred Heart, has officially re-opened his recruitment but is still considering Pitt among his “top schools,” his AAU coach told SNY.tv.

    Heron is the No. 4 combo guard in 2016 and the No. 18 player in the nation, according to 247Sports.com.

    “They want to make sure that they are making an informed decision with their commitment and in order to make that decision they want to explore a couple of other options,” NY Rens coach Andy Borman told SNY.tv.

    “They don’t have a school list right now because Mustafa has been committed to Pitt for a while, but I’m  sure that he and his dad will be getting calls from every major program in the country.”

    Heron initially committed to Pittsburgh in January 2014 when Barry “Slice” Rohrssen was on the staff. Rohrssen played overseas with Heron’s father, Bryan, and thus the family has a connection.

    With Rohrssen now at St. John’s, look for St. John’s to make a big push for him at St. John’s, along with fellow 2016 NY Rens and Christ the King guard Rawle Alkins.

    Last month, Heron went for a a game-high 31 points to lead Sacred Heart to its second straight Connecticut Class S state title, over Valley Regional, 71-46.
