  • Jerome Seagears to Announce Wednesday

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Former Rutgers guard Jerome Seagears will announce his next destination Wednesday.

    The 6-foot-2 Seagears will choose either Auburn or Arkansas, according to a Tweet from his former high school coach, Darrick Bond.

    Seagears visited Arkansas this past weekend and enjoyed it and went to Auburn the weekend before.

    “He likes both head coaches [Mike Anderson of Arkansas and Tony Barbee of Auburn] and also likes both styles of play,” Bond told SNY.tv.

    “He believes he can flourish in either system. He’s not really worried about what they were and how they are. He’s more about what can I bring, how can I make them better? He likes the fanbases. Both facilities are first-class. He’s just trying to figure which one is the better fit.”

    Seagears had also been considering Baylor, Marquette, Cincinnati and West Virginia.

    The 6-foot-1 native of Silver Springs, MD, averaged 6.5 points and 2.6 assists last season.

    He is one of several Rutgers players transferring.

    Junior wing Mike Poole already picked Iona.

    Sophomore guard Eli Carter is currently visiting Florida and is expected to visit Maryland later this week and then choose between the two.
