Seton Hall has pulled in a transfer as talented Sacred Heart guard Quincy McKnight pledged to the Pirates on Friday.

The 6-foot-3 McKnight was a first-team All-NEC conference selection this past season after averaging 18.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game as a sophomore. McKnight will have to sit out next season due to NCAA transfer restrictions, but he’ll have two years of eligibility left remaining.

McKnight was clearly one of the most talented players in the NEC last season, so this up-transfer to the Big East definitely makes sense. This is also a really tough loss for Sacred Heart for the second consecutive season as they also lost former NEC Player of the Year Cane Broome to transfer last offseason when he ended up at Cincinnati.
