CLASS OF 2013 STOCK RISER: SAM SINGER
Sam Singer, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound guard from Ransom Everglades High School near Miami (FL), has been turning heads on the AAU circuit all spring with Gold Coast AAU. Known most for his ability to score off the ball, NBE saw Singer on Day Two of the Hoop Group’s Pittsburgh Jam Fest where his ability to play on the ball helped spring an upset over Philly Pride in an exciting contest. Singer has very intriguing size for a back court prospect which he uses to get into the line and finish or draw many trips to the free throw line as well as a nice looking shooting stroke that is improving out past the three-point arc. What NBE saw from him in Pittsburgh was what he felt were his greatest strengths are as a player.
“I’m a true combo guard and my ability to make shots and create for others and basketball IQ are my strengths,” he said. “I’m working hard this offseason on my athleticism and defensively.”
Getting the chance to play in front of college coaches for two weekends in April was something Singer was very much looking forward to doing. He certainly took great advantage of the opportunity and is already looking forward to seeing the coaches on the trail again this July.
“I really enjoyed it because they got a a chance to see me play then and give me two months to improve before July,” Singer said of the April evaluation period experience. “I hope they (college coaches) saw the strides I made from the high school season up to then and that I proved I can play with anyone.”
It is a pretty good bet the coaches saw exactly that as his recruitment has exploded in the last month.
“Since then Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Stanford, Davidson, Pittsburgh and Tennessee have begun to show interest,” Singer told NBE earlier this evening. “New offers were from Kansas State, Virginia Tech, Auburn, Penn State, Richmond, Davidson and Boston College just from April alone.”
Back at the Pittsburgh Jam Fest Singer told NBE Miami, South Carolina, Central Florida, South Florida, Northeastern, Boston University and William & Mary have all offered and that he’s hearing from Indiana, Virginia, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame and Harvard. Singer remains wide open in his recruitment and more offers could be just around the corner judging by the interest several schools are currently showing.
“I’m receiving heavy interest from Indiana, Wake Forest, Harvard, Alabama, Stanford, Pitt, Tennessee and Penn as well as Virginia,” said Singer.
Singer is looking forward to the July period as it will likely be a fine-tuning period of his recruitment, seeing who is really interested in adding him to their recruiting class for 2013. After that period he will look at the factors that are important to him in a school and look to sign in the early signing period next fall.
“We’ll see after July. I plan on deciding in November but that can change if I don’t feel the situation is right for me,” he said about a time frame for a college decision. “The most important factors will be academics and high level basketball style of play that fits me and good relationships with the coaching staff and players.”
Sam Singer definitely put his name firmly on the map in the Class of 2013 this spring as a player high-major programs are going to be all over this July. He has been drawing an impressive amount of offers already and the list could grow in number and stature this summer. NBE will look to watch his recruitment unfold and check back in with him through the summer as we look to see him in action on the AAU trail again…as will many college coaches!
