Sources indicate that Grant Billmeier, a 6-10, 230 pound power forward/center from St. Patrick H.S. in Elizabeth, N.J., will take an unofficial visit to Seton Hall this week before he heads out to Colorado for the junior USA tryouts.
Billmeier also recently took a visit to the campus of Seton Hall. Billmeier, who competed at this past weekend's Metro Classic on the campus of Seton Hall, told us he had a good visit to the Pirates campus.
Billmeier is a rising senior who has intrigued many top programs with his size and skills. Grant helped St. Patrick advance to the quarterfinals of the high school national championship which will be held in Philadelphia on July 13th and 14th. Billmeier has a tough streak in him too.
He battles you for loose balls and has good court awareness for a big man. Once he starts strengthening his upper body and arms, Grant will be even better. This will allow him to finish better inside and help him in the rebounding department.
Billmeier has already taken an official visit to Pittsburgh. Billmeier also praised that visit too. It appears that Pittsburgh and Seton Hall are the two schools that Billmeier is seriously considering.
On the Pittsburgh trip, he took that visit with fellow New Jersey native Sean Banks, a player who told RivalsHoops.com that he enjoyed seeing the new arena that the Panthers plan on playing in soon.
Billmeier has also toured the Virginia campus but with a broken hand. Grant took this visit in May when he was on the UVA campus for the Southern Invitational. Billmeier doesn't have a cast anymore and appears to be recovering properly.
Rutgers, Rhode Island, Colorado, Villanova, Notre Dame, Purdue and Wake Forest have also expressed interest too in Billmeier.
