    Former Seton Hall forward Alexis Yetna has transferred to Fairfield and could be a major force in the MAAC if he can get healthy after knee surgery.

    “I had a great relationship with the coaches, had a great time on my visit,” he said. “I know that I wasn’t only wanted but needed. Coming back from my knee surgery, the coaches had a clear plan for me. In terms of skillset, it will be my versatility, being able to do play inside out and bringing my leadership in a team with a lot of upside.”

    “Alexis is a mature, gifted basketball player that when healthy, has been dominant,” Fairfield coach Jay Young told ZAGSBLOG. “He is recovering from knee surgery and is extremely diligent with his rehab. We are hoping to have him back in November at some point and look forward to him getting back on the court.”

    The 6-foot-8 graduate student and native of Paris, France was on the Seton Hall roster for the 2022-23 season after initially planning to sign with an agent and pursue his professional dreams. but he did not play at all due to injury, which limited coach Shaheen Holloway’s frontcourt depth.

    Yetna averaged 8.1 points and 7.6 rebounds during the 2021-22 season for the Pirates. He averaged 9.5 points and 7.3 rebounds in 16 games at South Florida during the 2020-21 season before transferring to Seton Hall.
