Seton Hall Basketball: Evaluating the Transfer Pool

New, 12 comments

**UPDATED 4/16***

Now that Jeff Goodman of has released his renowned transfer list, let the speculation begin.

Like every off-season, just about every coach in college basketball will take a gander at the list of possible transfers in order to better their squad - the Seton Hall staff is no different, they are definitely interested. The Pirates are in obvious need of forwards, as shown by who they are targeting in the 2011 class. With that being said, I narrowed down Goodman's list to players that are of Big East quality and are also forwards. I removed a bunch of forwards that had very small numbers for low-major schools, all guards and Wally Judge of Kansas State - he will not be coming to South Orange.

I added an asterisk and an explanation to some of the players indicating that they are probably the most likely on this shortened list to transfer to Seton Hall. I also separated the mid and low-majors from the "BCS" schools and schools that aren't considered mid-majors (Mountain West, Atlantic-10).

Speculate away:


*Carl Baptiste, 6-8, F, Soph., Saint Joseph’s - Baptiste is from NJ.
*Chris Fitzgerald, 6-8, F, Fr., George Washington - Fitzgerald attended Northfield Mount Hermon, the same high school that Aaron Cosby is from.
Dan Jennings, 6-8, F, Soph., West Virginia
*Jordan Latham, 6-8, F, Fr., Xavier - Latham is from the Maryland/DC area. Assistant coach Chris Pompey has connections to that area.
Eric McKnight, 6-9, F, Fr., Iowa State

Murphy Burnatowski, 6-7, F, Soph., Maine
Braxton Dupree, 6-8, F, Jr., Towson - From Calvert Hall(MD), same HS as Seton Hall target Jonathan Graham. Also in Pompey's recruiting area.
Shaun Pratl, 6-8, F, Soph., Eastern Illinois
*Gene Teague, 6-9, C, Soph., Southern Illinois - Gene was recruited by Seton Hall out of high school.
Kendrick Washington, 6-7, F, Soph., Houston


Any players that wind up transferring to Seton Hall that aren't on this list were either excluded by Goodman, or weren't considered Big East quality by myself. I was pretty lenient with who I considered Big East quality.

*Update 5/10 - Jay Canty (Xavier) to Appalachian State.
