It looks like Jerome Seagears has changed his mind again, but this is an instance where nobody can blame him. Seagears is a college basketball player who played for Rutgers under Mike Rice — after word got out of Rice’s player abuse, Seagears he needed a change of scenery and transferred to Auburn.
However, just last week Seagears announced that he was not going to remain at Auburn; he stated that he “had not yet recovered emotionally” from the Rutgers scandal, and needed to get back closer to home and nearer to his family. It turns out that closer to home is back with the Scarlet Knights.
According to Adam Zagoria of Zagsblog.com, Seagears will make the complete 180-degree turn and rejoin the Rutgers basketball program, now led by Eddie Jordan.
“I believe everything happens for a reason and God has a plan for everybody. I believe this is his plan for me, to return home to my Scarlet Knights. I have experienced a lot of uncertainty over the last several months and I look forward to continuing my college career where it started.”
Because he has taken part in no official Auburn basketball activities since transferring in April, Seagears will be eligible to play again immediately this fall. Seagears averaged 6.5 points, 2.6 assists, and 2.5 rebounds per game in 2012-2013.
