According to a release from the University, Seton Hall sophomore Aaron Cosby (Louisville, Ky.) will transfer from the school.
"We want to thank Aaron for his two years in a Seton Hall uniform," Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard said in a release from the University. "We wish him luck in his future endeavors."
The news of Cosby's transfer comes a month and a half after the shooting guard did not travel to Pittsburgh with the team due to family reasons. Shortly thereafter, rumors soaked in truth spread that Cosby was seriously considering transferring from the program.
Cosby silenced some of these rumors with a 25-point outing against Connecticut in his first game back. However, after fielding multiple questions from the media, Cosby never gave his commitment to the program. As recently as his last game against Syracuse in Madison Square Garden, Aaron told media after the game "I don't know. I haven't thought about it," in regards to his future at Seton Hall.
Cosby averaged 12.6 PPG and 3.0 APG while playing both point guard and 2-guard for the Pirates this past season.
What this means for Seton Hall: Cosby's pending transfer was widely known and speculated about for quite some time. Cosby takes his team second-best scoring average and first-team shooting guard abilities with him. In his absence, expect Brian Oliver, an incoming freshman, a junior college recruit, or Jaren Sina (read below) to see more time at shooting guard next season.
Jerron Wilbut, a Class of 2013 recruit who would have been a like-for-like replacement for Aaron Cosby was arrested on robbery charges two weeks ago.
Jaren Sina, a Class of 2013 shooting guard from Gill St. Bernard's (N.J.), will be released from his NLI with Northwestern following the firing of head coach Bill Carmody. Sina de-committed from Alabama prior to his pledge to Northwestern. Seton Hall is expected to inquire, if they haven't already.
Seton Hall heavily recruited Sina prior to his commitments to Alabama and Northwestern, respectively. Third time is the charm?
