Rutgers basketball recruit Lathan Sommerville moves up in the 247Sports national rankings

Lathan Sommerville is moving on up. The Rutgers basketball commit made a nice jump in the rankings tthis week according to 247Sports.

During the summer, Sommerville was ranked the No. 133 recruit in the nation by 247Sports. But after a strong summer, he is now No. 102, making a significant leap in the national rankings; he remains a three-star according to the 247Sports evaluators.

With the bump, he is also No. 82 in the 247Sports Composite. In the national composite, Sommerville is a four-star.

Rivals and ESPN also rank Sommerville as a four-star, bumping his overall ranking in the 247Sports Composite.

Sommerville committed to Rutgers from a top seven that included Villanova, Rutgers, Seton Hall, Bradley, Xavier, Missouri and Virginia Tech. A 6-foot-10 center from the Skill Factory (Atlanta, GA), he is very strong in the post but his agility in transition has really stood out this summer.

A strong rebounder and defensive presence, Sommerville committed to Rutgers in April.

“I believe Rutgers is the best fit for me because they adjust to their players and nothing is promised there,” Sommerville said after he committed. “I love and trust the coaches so that made it even easier.”
