Seton Hall sophomore forward Ferrakohn Hall will transfer immediately.
“I wish Ferrakohn luck in his future endeavors,” head coach Kevin Willard said.
The news was previously reported on SouthOrangeJuice.com.
As of Tuesday night, Memphis AAU coach Eric Robinson had received calls on Hall from Oregon State, Murray St, Memphis, Arkansas and UNC-Charlotte.
Several sources said the 6-foot-8 Hall was unhappy with his playing time and has always wanted to play more of a two guard spot.
Hall, a Memphis native, started one game this season for Seton Hall at forward, and averaged 5.4 points and 3.3 rebounds.
Seton Hall could lose Jeff Robinson and Herb Pope next season. The additional loss of Hall would be another blow to their frontcourt.
ST. JOHN’S ROBERTS TO TRANSFER
St. John’s redshirt sophomore guard Quincy Roberts will also transfer for the spring semester.
“Quincy is an outstanding individual with a bright future in whatever he chooses to pursue,” head coach Steve Lavin said. “He has been a valued member of our basketball family. He leaves St. John’s University in good academic standing.”
Roberts played in 41 games over the past two and a half seasons. He met the criteria for a medical redshirt for the 2009-10 season, resulting from migraines suffered early in the year, and participated in four games. He has seen action in four of the Red Storm’s nine contests in 2010-11, averaging 1.0 points per outing and 7.8 minutes.
A combination guard, Roberts averaged 5.0 points as a true freshman in 2008-09, playing in 33 of 34 games and drawing nine starts at the point guard position.
“It has been a good opportunity and a great experience at St. John’s,” said Roberts. “I enjoyed everything during my time there, and I’m sorry things didn’t work out, but I’ll always be a part of St. John’s and what they’re building.”
