Anthony Nelson has committed to the Seton Hall Pirates! The class of 2018 point guard out of South Kent High School in Connecticut announced his decision to commit to The Hall on Tuesday night.

The Pirates were battling with the Minnesota Golden Gophers and Dayton Flyers for Nelson. In the end, he will be staying local and playing in the Tri-State Area for head coach Kevin Willard next fall and beyond. He, along with Darnell Brodie, currently enrolled at Montverde Academy, represent Seton Hall’s class of 2018 right now.

Seton Hall now adds to their point guard situation for 2018. Former Sacred Heart Pioneers transfer Quincy McKnight and 2017 commit Jordan Walker figured to be the lead guards for the Pirates next season. Now, with Nelson aboard, there’ll likely be some competition for playing time between the three.

Nelson is listed at 6-foot-4, 180 lbs. as he enters his senior year at South Kent. The NY Lighting point guard ranks 185th overall in the class of 2018 per 247Sports Composite. He also ranks 37th among all point guards in the class and second overall in the state of Connecticut. Only four-star power forward Dimon Carrigan of Woodstock Academy ranks higher than Nelson in The Land of Steady Habits.
