News emerged from New Jersey on Tuesday evening that Seton Hall sophomore Freddie Wilson had made the immediate decision to transfer from the university.
Playing time ultimately paved the way for Wilson’s decision, as competition in the back court was heating up. In eight games this season, Wilson was averaging just over five minutes per game. The sophomore had been averaging 1.4 points per contest in that span.
An original native of New Haven, Connecticut, there is no immediate speculation into where or when Wilson will make his next decision. Wilson is likely a target for some area mid-major programs.
During a Dec. 19 win over Longwood, Wilson scored seven points in a game in which he saw his most action. In 18 minutes of play, Wilson was productive offensively and also added three assists in the victory.
“I thank Freddie for his contributions over the last two seasons and wish him luck in his future endeavors,” Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard said in a statement that was released on Tuesday night.
Wilson will more than likely be forced to sit out a full year before becoming eligible to take the court yet again, but he will have two and a half years of eligibility remaining once he can.
Former Seton Hall guard Sean Grennan, who made the decision to transfer last spring, ended up landing at Fairfield. Given Wilson’s hometown, a similar school could certainly be an option.
