Seton Hall basketball landed one of its biggest commitments in recent memory Saturday as promising point guard Myles Powell announced his intention to play for the Pirates.
According to 247sports, the 6'1" guard from Trenton, New Jersey, is the No. 17 prospect at his position in his class, and the No. 86 overall player nationally.
Jon Rothstein of CBSSports.com highlighted the importance of Powell's commitment to Seton Hall:
It has been a decade since Seton Hall last qualified for the NCAA tournament, there is hope for a brighter future due to the addition of Powell and the fact that head coach Kevin Willard has led the Pirates to a record of .500 or better in each of his two seasons with the school.
Seton Hall has a far better chance to make noise in the current version of the Big East than it did previously, and if it can continue to reel in the state's top recruits, such as Powell, then it may be on the verge of returning to prominence for the first time in years.
