Long Island Lutheran (N.Y.) guard Jayden Pierre has received an offer from Xavier yesterday, per multiple sources.
Additionally, the 6-foot-2, 165-pound rising senior holds offers from Buffalo, Minnesota, Creighton, St. Peter’s (NJ), Rhode Island, Bryant, Nebraska, New Mexico State, Rutgers, Florida, and Robert Morris, per VerbalCommits.com.
Pierre, a Roselle, N.J., native, can do all things that you expect, and need, from a guard: he can slice through defensives, get to the basket, and score in traffic. He also plays a solid defense, possesses a nice step-back jumper, drains the trey from deep, making him difficult to defend closely, and passes the rock well.
Xavier posted a 13-8 overall record and went 6-7 in Big East Conference action in the 2020-21 campaign.
