St. John's among 2013 Jermaine Lawrence's final seven schools

Jermaine Lawrence (2013) has cut his list to seven possible schools, including St. John's.

St. John's has had its eye on Jermaine Lawrence for some time. As his recruiting process continues, he assures the world that he still has his eye on the Red Storm.

Lawrence, the 6'8" forward from Springfield Gardens in Queens, is one of New York's most talented prospects for 2013. The fast and high-flying athlete cut his list of potential landing spots to seven on Saturday night.

The Johnnies are among a list of suitors, which also still includes Kentucky, Kansas, UCLA, UNLV, and Big East foes Syracuse and Cincinnati. If a group of programs with such highly-regarded recruiting track records are after Lawrence, you know the kid is among the true elite.

More, below the fold.

Lawrence is currently attending Pope John XXIII High School in New Jersey, and it was once believed that Rutgers and Seton Hall were in the running for the forward. Many other programs including Georgetown, Marquette, Pittsburgh, Louisville, and Florida had also been mentioned.

He has been busy this summer, including a great showing at the second annual Mary Kline Classic in New Jersey. His stock continues to rise with all schools involved.

Steve Lavin has made clear that recruiting to make the Red Storm a contender again will be important both on a national level and on a local level. As he did by attracting Moe Harkless to St. John's, getting a New York City talent like Jermaine Lawrence to stay home would be a fantastic step towards the program's ultimate revival.

Per Adam Zagoria, no official visits have been scheduled by Lawrence. Stay tuned to Rumble in the Garden for more updates on this story as more details emerge.
