Seton Hall interested in Temple transfer Anthony Lee

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Temple forward transfer Anthony Lee (13.6 ppg, 8.6 rpg) has decided to transfer and will be immediately eligible for the 2014-15 season.

Lee is taking advantage of the expanding 5th-year transfer rule (grad transfer), which allows Lee to transfer and be eligible immediately if he graduated from Temple and another school has a major that Temple does not. Lee has a fourth season of eligibility left after redshirting his freshman year as an Owl due to a back injury.

ESPN's Jeff Goodman reported that Iowa State, Illinois, Marquette, and Indiana immediately reached out to Lee with a handful of more schools joining in. Louisville, Ohio State, Florida, Florida State, USC, Miami, Pittsburgh, NC State, Maryland, Iowa, Butler, Ole Miss, St. John's, Providence, Seton Hall, and Arizona have also joined in on what is a growing list of high-majors that are after the experienced 6-9 forward.

The biggest part of this story is that Seton Hall is still actively pursuing another player to join next season's roster when there's currently no room on the Pirate ship. Seton Hall's four signed 2014 players plus Northwestern transfer Chier Ajou and unsigned wing Desi Rodriguez would occupy the last remaining scholarships assuming all players qualify and there are no departures from the current roster.

Assuming.

Seton Hall's interest in Anthony Lee and maintained recruitment of 2014 wing/forward Marvin Clark, who decides next Monday between Indiana, Michigan State, Kansas State, and Seton Hall, tells me that something is afoot in South Orange.
