Rutgers guard Jerome Seagears appears to be on the move — again. The Scarlet Knights junior will reportedly transfer from the Rutgers program for the second time in a calendar year, according to a person familiar with the situation, who asked to remain anonymous because the transfer paperwork was not complete. Seagears, who left the program in the wake of the Mike Rice fallout last year, did not immediately return a message seeking comment. The news of Seagears' transfer was first reported by CBSSports.com. Seagears left the Scarlet Knights last year for Auburn, where he spent less than a month. Once head coach Eddie Jordan was hired to replace Rice, Seagears made the decision to leave the Tigers program — eventually deciding to come back to Rutgers. But once back at Rutgers under Jordan, Seagears was never able to get on the same page with Jordan, falling into the head coach's doghouse for much of the season. Seagears averaged 27.2 minutes a game as a sophomore with Rice, but watched as that number dropped to 21.1 this season. He played only nine minutes in the last game of the year — the 61-point loss in the AAC Tournament to Louisville. Seagears saw less than 10 minutes of game action in four of the Scarlet Knights' final seven games of the season and scored a 11 points over that stretch.
