Hailed as a gregarious sharpshooter with a unique distinction, Veer Singh is the first player of Indian descent in Seton Hall history.

Veer Singh, a new recruit and the first Indian-origin player to play for Seton Hall School basketball team in New Jersey, has been praised for his skills in the game. He stands 6’7” tall and plays as a freshman wing player. Praised for his skills in the game, he was signed on from St. Peter’s Preparatory School in New Jersey earlier this year.

His teammates and the coach Kevin Willard are all praise for him and say he significantly brings the shooting ability they lack.

"He is going to bring the shooting ability I think we lack, and he is going to stretch the floor for us," a player said, adding, "I saw him play a couple of times in high school and I thought he could shoot, he's really excelled here."

The team head coach commended Singh for his attitude saying he loves his toughness and how hard he has played, and the coach is confident he is really going to help the team. "It means a great deal for them to have confidence in me, because if they don't, they are not going to kick it out. The fact that they're looking to kick it out, that's huge… I love Veer's attitude. I love his toughness. I love how hard he has played. Anyone who can make shots like he can is really going to help us," Singh said.
