Andre Rafus

Andre Rafus, the 6-foot-8 wing from Roselle (N.J.) Catholic, announced he has cut his list to seven schools.

The list includes Kentucky, Kansas, N.C. State, Georgetown, Butler, TCU and Seton Hall. It remains unclear how many of these schools are actively recruiting Rafus at this time.

PHILADELPHIA - On Thursday morning at the Elevate Hoops Summer Icebreaker, Andre Rafus put on a show in front of college coaches at Philadelphia University.

The 6-foot-9 Class of 2017 forward from Roselle (N.J.) Catholic scored 26 points to propel Team Melo over the Jersey Shore Warriors, 65-47.

Rafus performed well for the second day in a row in front of the contingency of college coaches on hand to see him play. N.C. State was two deep with head coach Mark Gottfried and assistant Heath Schroyer to watch him.

There are three heavy favorites to win the New Jersey Tournament of Champions title in March: St. Anthony's, St. Patrick's and Roselle Catholic.

Two of those "Big Three" will meet in the span of four days when St. Pat's (10-3) and Roselle Catholic (10-3) essentially play a home-and-home series on Wednesday night (7:30 p.m.) at Rahway High School (where St. Pat's plays its home games) and on Saturday night at Roselle Catholic (7 p.m.).

By Saturday night, fans of Garden State high school hoops may have a clearer picture of where the TOC favorites stand, although St. Anthony's already owns a 60-56 win over St. Pat's at the Dan Finn Classic and remains unbeaten on the season. The Friars are ranked No. 4 nationally by USA Today.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- One afternoon early last week, Georgetown assistant coach Kevin Broadus pulled his rental car into the parking lot at the Community Education and Recreation Center in Jersey City -- the St. Anthony's High School practice facility known as the CERC.

Once inside the gym, Broadus was one of several Division 1 assistant coaches watching an open gym featuring the Friars, the program run during the season by legendary Naismith Hall of Fame coach Bob Hurley.

Georgetown already has one player committed from St. Anthony's in senior guard Jagan Mosely. And the Hoyas probably wouldn't mind adding a few more, either.
