SOUTH ORANGE – Seton Hall men’s basketball head coach Bobby Gonzalez announced today that Fuquan Edwin (Paterson) has signed a national letter of intent to attend the university and play basketball for the Pirates beginning in the 2010-11 season.
The 6-foot-6, 205-pound, small forward will join future teammate Jordan Theodore as the second Paterson Catholic alum who was coached under the tutelage of Coach Damon Wright. Edwin is currently starting for the Cougars in his senior year.
“We are very excited about the signing of Fuquan Edwin,” Gonzalez said. “He’s a very talented, multi-position player that will fit perfectly. I think he’s going to have an excellent senior season and will be one of the top four or five players in the State of New Jersey. Every time we see him, he gets better and better. We love the fact that he can get out on the wing and just score the basketball in a variety of ways. Fuquan is coming off a tremendous summer and we think he’s going to be a real steal for us to add him to our family for 2010-11.”
As a junior, Edwin averaged 16 points and eight rebounds a game in helping Paterson Catholic to a second consecutive Passaic County Championship. A Second Team All-State and All-County selection, he is the #77-ranked prospect in the Hoop Scoops Top-100. Among the nation’s small forwards, Scout.com ranks him #48, while ESPN ranks him as the 23rd best small forward.
