NCAA Basketball Recruiting 2012: Kyle Smyth Transfers To Seton Hall From Iona

The Seton Hall Pirates have reportedly landed Iona transfer guard Kyle Smyth, a 6-foot-4 guard who averaged 5.5 points per game as a junior. He will be eligible to play in the upcoming season.


The Seton Hall Pirates have landed Iona transfer guard Kyle Smyth, according to a report from CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman.

Smyth, who does not have to sit out a year and will be eligible in the upcoming season, chose Seton Hall over his other primary suitor, the Boston College Eagles.

The 22-year old saw his role decrease during his junior year at Iona, and his scoring average dropped from 10.1 points to 5.5. The Gaels earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament by winning the MAAC Tournament title, but lost to BYU in a play-in game.

In four seasons with Iona (his original freshman year was cut short, and he played only 17 minutes before being granted a red-shirt), the 6-foot-4 Smyth totaled 762 points. His best season came as a sophomore, when he averaged 10.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists.
