Stick a feather in the cap of the Northwestern staff.
For the second year in a row (and now three of the last four) Bill Carmody and his staff have landed a Rivals150 player now that New Jersey point guard Jaren Sina has picked Northwestern.
"I felt most comfortable with the coaching staff," Sina told Rivals.com. "Also the system and the way they play is a good fit.
"I'm a pass first point guard and an unselfish player and a shooter. They have a lot of ball movement and shoot the ball a lot from the perimeter."
There was plenty of temptation for Sina to stay home. He loves being close to New York City but with Northwestern being so close to Chicago, he saw a situation to get away from home but be still be near the action of a big city.
"I just think going to college is a big adjustment in general," said Sina. "I'm excited about being right outside of Chicago because it reminds me of the city."
A four-star point guard, Sina is a good passer and can knock down the open three-pointer. He's going to keep working to get stronger and thought that now was a good time to make his choice so coaches wouldn't spin their wheels needlessly chasing him during July.
"I need to continue to get stronger," said Sina. "In the Big Ten you have those guys at Ohio State and Michigan State with big strong teams. I've worked hard to get quicker and I think that's really helped.
"I think because I knew where I wanted to go I didn't want to waste any coaches time. I just wanted to get it over with."
