Seagears returns to Rutgers, won't transfer
Junior guard Jerome Seagears has returned to Rutgers and will not transfer, as originally planned.
PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Junior guard Jerome Seagears has returned to Rutgers and will not transfer, as originally planned.
Seagears completed the necessary paperwork Friday, the school said. And according to NCAA transfer guidelines, Seagears is eligible to return to the Scarlet Knights and be eligible for 2013-14 competition.
"I believe everything happens for a reason," Seagears said. "I believe this is his plan for me, to return home to my Scarlet Knights. I have experienced a lot of uncertainty over the last several months and I look forward to continuing my college career where it started."
Seagears was granted a transfer release from Rutgers on April 9, not long after former coach Mike Rice was fired. Seagears has played in 63 games for Rutgers.
"We are very excited to welcome Jerome back into the program," new Rutgers coach Eddie Jordan said. "He is a very talented young man. I look forward to providing Jerome and his teammates an extremely positive Rutgers experience. We are going to work together and build a program that will be a source of pride."
