    9r4a4185Maverick Rowan is in the process of reclassing to 2015 and will visit St. John’s on Monday, his father confirmed to SNY.tv.

    “He is taking classes to graduate,” said Ron Rowan , the player’s father who played with St. John’s coach Chris Mullin in the mid-1980s under legendary coach Lou Carnesecca. “He is coming to New York City to visit St. John’s and then he’s going to the Nike Camp in L.A.”

    The 6-foot-7 small forward out of Fort Lauderdale (FL) Cardinal Gibbons had been considering a reclass for some time now.

    Maverick Rowan had previously been considering North Carolina, N.C. State, UCLA, St. John’s, Louisville and Wisconsin, but is now down to four schools. The family is not publicly disclosing which four.

    He told Scout.com he won’t decide until the end of the summer.

    “It’s not going to be for a while,” he told the site. “Probably going to be towards the end of the summer.”

    The most important factor in his decision will be playing time, something St. John’s can certainly offer with a whole new slew of players coming in for Mullin.

    “I’m not going to go to a place where I’m not going to play right away,” he recently told SNY.tv, “and that’s just the bottom line.”

    Rowan has cemented himself as one of the top shooters in the Class of 2016.

    “I can do other things besides shooting,” he recently told SNY.tv. “I can score off the dribble, I can create for others. I can do a lot of other things others than shoot.”

    Rowan visited Louisville in March, and came away impressed.

    “I took a visit to Louisville,” he said. “It was a great visit and great experience at Louisville. They won a tough game on Senior Night against Virginia. I’m talking to all of their coaches, and I have a great relationship with them.”

    Jon Rothstein of CBSSports.com previously reported the news.
