The University of Virginia has thrown its hat in the ring for junior point guard Jaren Sina , currently no. 45 in’s Super 60 national rankings for the 2013 class. Head coach Tony Bennett offered a scholarship to the 6’2″ standout almost two weeks ago, and Sina is interested.

“I know they are looking for a point guard in my class,” Sina said of Virginia. Tony Bennett was in attendance for Gill St. Bernard’s (Gladstone, N.J.) scrimmage against St. Anthony on December 14. “I haven’t known Coach Bennett for that long, but I like the guy a lot. We have a lot in common. He played for his dad, and I play for mine. We’re both point guards. We have a great relationship so far. I think we are similar guys. That’s why I’m really interested. Also, the education is great and it’s kind of close to home.”
