Northeast recruiting news & notes

This week’s news and notes from the Northeast are once again headlined by Christ the King (N.Y.) guard Jon Severe. He’s picked up new suitors on virtually a weekly basis since the first of the year, and he added another offer from Pittsburgh this week.

Severe was initially scheduled to take his fifth and final official visit to Alabama this week, but that has since been canceled with Alabama apparently no longer an option. Unofficial trips to West Virginia and Pittsburgh appear next on tap, while local suitors St. John’s and Rutgers also remain in the mix along with Boston College. Duquesne, George Washington and St. Bonaventure are all still heavily involved as well.
