By JACOB POLACHECKQuincy McKnight, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound sophomore guard from Sacred Heart, will transfer to Seton Hall.
He’ll sit out next season per NCAA rules, and then have two years of eligibility at Seton Hall.
He also considered Santa Clara, Nevada, Penn State, Memphis and Middle Tennessee State.
“What made me choose Seton Hall was how good the coaching staff is at developing their players,” he said.
“And just being around the team you can tell everybody’s main goal is to get better and win.”
Last season at Sacred Heart, McKnight averaged 18.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3 assists per game.
“I’ll be able to make people around me better and will put pressure on the defense because I’m able to score the ball at a high level.”
“Quincy McKnight will present himself as an extremely coachable student-athlete,” said McKnight’s former coach with the PSA Cardinals, Munch Williams. “He will position himself to do whatever is needed from the coaching [staff] with the single goal of winning. He will fit in great with the other talented young men at Seton Hall and showcase his ability to be a great teammate.”
