Sammy Mejia, a versatile 6-5, 190-pound swingman/shooting guard from Storm King Prep in Bear Mountain, New York, told us at the Three Stripes Classic this past weekend that Seton Hall is the leader in the recruiting process.
Mejia cemented his status as a top 50 national talent with his performance at the ABCD Camp as well as this past weekend at the Three Stripes Classic.
Mejia showed college coaches that he is an able ballhandler who is capable of running the point as a scoring guard, or playing off the ball. Sammy is capable of taking smaller guards off the dribble, and is a solid athlete with good body control. He needs to hit the weights to compete at the next level.
Sammy has no doubt bolstered his stock during this past week. He told Rivals Hoops that he is hearing from Miami(Florida), Florida, St. John's, Syracuse, Seton Hall, DePaul, Illinois, UConn, Villanova, South Florida, and Hofstra. He has been offered by Miami, Seton Hall, Depaul, South Florida, and Hofstra. "I like the way Seton Hall is recruiting me," Mejia said. "They are showing the most interest in me."
Mejia has already taken unofficial visits to Syracuse and Hofstra. He plans on taking his official visits in September.
Mejia will will participate in the Las Vegas Big Time Classic with the same crew. Sammy will also fly out to California for the Double Pump tournament. Mejia came up through Ruben Tavarez's Bronx-based LPAC program.
Mejia has already achieved a qualifying SAT score of 820. He has maintained a GPA of 3.6 at Storm King Prep, which has raised his cumulative average between Storm King and Roosevelt High School in the Bronx to 2.2, he told us.
