New Jersey guard chooses SEC school

Jaren Sina’s legend has been growing with a big-time scoring effort seemingly every game.

In 2013, Sina will look to continue that trend in Tuscaloosa – the New Jersey guard committed to Alabama Tuesday night.

The 6-foot-1 guard from Gill St. Bernard’s (N.J.) chose the Crimson Tide over Seton Hall, Rutgers, St. John’s, Florida, La Salle and others.

“In Orlando, Alabama was at our games,” said Mergin Sina, Jaren’s father and coach. “I mean, we were a team that no one really knew, but Alabama was there. Then they were at another, and another. Then when he went down there for Elite Camp, he fell in love with the school.”

Sina joins Shannon Hale in Anthony Grant’s 2013 class.

“It’s the right fit. For us, it was just, ‘this is the place,’” his father said. “He’s going to be able to build a legacy there.”
