  • Seton Hall announced Tuesday that a pair of New Yorkers — New York City native Anthony Nelson and Long Island native Jared Rhoden — have signed their National Letters of Intent.

    “We are proud and excited to welcome Anthony and Jared and their families into the Pirates family,” head coach Kevin Willard said. “Both are bright and talented young men with great futures, and they are hungry and excited to come to Seton Hall to further their educations and develop their basketball skills.

    “Metro New York is a thriving area for basketball, and we are excited to again receive commitments from tough, hard-nosed student-athletes from the area who fit the style of program we have developed here at Seton Hall.”

    Antwann Jones, the 6-foot-6 wing from Orlando (Fla.) Oak Ridge, has committed to Texas A&M and will sign a National Letter of Intent on Tuesday, 247Sports reported.

    A onetime Oklahoma State commit, he changed course after the FBI investigation into college basketball bribery that involved former OSU assistant Lamont Evans.

    “He just liked the fit,” Oak Ridge coach Steve Reece told the site of the commitment to A&M. “He felt like he knew the players. He had played at camp with some of the players there. He really liked the coaching staff too.”

    “He loved the environment and the culture they have down there,” he added.
