Following his freshman season at Seton Hall, Pirates guard Sean Grennan decided to transfer, and it now appears he has found a home.

Grennan, a 6-2 guard, will transfer to Fairfield, according to Jay Gomes of NJHoops.com.

The Sea Girt, N.J., native appeared in 18 games for Kevin Willard and Seton Hall last season, though he was used sparingly.

In a win over Longwood in late December, Grennan had five points.

Out of high school, Grennan was a two-star prospect, considering mostly mid-majors before choosing Seton Hall. He had drawn interest from schools that include Charlotte, Fordham, LaSalle, Tulane, and Vermont.

Grennan will need to sit out one season, as mandated by the NCAA, but would be eligible to play at the start of the 2013-14 season.

Fairfield finished last season with an overall record of 22-15, including 12-6 in the MAAC. The Stags have six players signed for this upcoming season from the Class of 2012, headed by 6-10 center Josip Mikulic.

Head coach Sydney Johnson, who was hired after the departure of now-Providence coach Ed Cooley, will be entering his second season with the team.
