Your Marquette Golden Eagles stay in the hunt for a 4-star forward prospect in the Class of 2019, as Seth Lundy announced his top ten schools via Twitter on Thursday.
Also in competition to land the forward’s signature are fellow Big East member school Georgetown, 2018 NIT opponents Penn State and Oregon, noted Buzz Williams-having school Virginia Tech, local Philadelphia schools La Salle and Temple, and SEC programs Florida and Ole Miss.
Listed at 6’6” and 195 lbs., Lundy projects to play small forward. With only two scholarships opening up next season and (presumably) the forward spot remaining clogged up by the two Hausers, Jamal Cain, Brendan Bailey, and Ed Morrow (not to mention centers Ike Eke and Theo John), there may be only minimal time available for Seth for his freshman season. He’s more of a slasher and athletic forward (a la Sacar Anim) than a shooter, but his shot is still in development, and being able to spend time with players like Markus Howard, Sam Hauser, and Jamal Cain probably won’t hurt his improving shot, so it would be interesting to see where he slots in with the 2019-2020 squad should he pick Marquette.
Despite the 4 star rating from 247 Sports, Seth is ranked outside the top 125 in the Class of 2019, including being ranked as the 34th best small forward. He took an unofficial visit to Marquette earlier this summer, so I’d expect the Golden Eagles to stay in the hunt until he commits. Right now no crystal ball predictions really exist, and there hasn’t been much of an indication by the recruiting world as to who the player favors,, but if I had to hazard a guess, I’d think that Marquette, Virginia Tech, Penn State, Oregon, and Florida will be the most competitive schools out to get him.
Best of luck to Seth in his senior season, as he and his school (Roman Catholic) will look to repeat as state champions.
