Trenton, New Jersey guard Myles Powell has committed to Seton Hall University.

The four-star recruit - the best prospect in the state of New Jersey in the Class of 2016 - announced his intentions to play for Kevin Willard and the Pirates on Saturday afternoon during his official visit to the school.

Powell had taken an unofficial visit to The Hall back on June 24 and now, just under three months later, the Pirates have nabbed the highly touted guard from the capital city of The Garden State.

Via ESPN's scouting report, the Pirates will likely enjoy what they're getting especially from a shooter's perspective:

Powell is one of the best three-point shooters in the country. He's virtually automatic when his feet are set and already owns range out to the NBA arc.

Powell is the first commit of the 2016 class for Willard and the Seton Hall Pirates.
