Seton Hall’s Dalton Soffer to transfer

Reserve two-guard Dalton Soffer has decided to transfer from Seton Hall after two seasons.

After playing 55 minutes and scoring just 18 points (6-21 3pt) over two seasons, it should come as no surprise that Soffer — a San Diego area native — is leaving the program.

Soffer saw mostly clean-up minutes in lopsided games, but when inserted into close games he also failed to impress with his strength coming out of high school: outside shooting.

Behind Khadeen Carrington, Myles Powell, Eron Gordon, and incoming freshman Myles Cale in the log-jam that is the two-guard spot, it makes sense that he will look to play at a lower level for his final two years. Soffer originally committed to Loyola (Md.) days prior to an in-home visit from the Seton Hall coaching staff, he later switched that verbal to the Hall; UPenn and Boston University were also involved.

Seton Hall now has three opening scholarships for the incoming 2017 class and beyond after accounting for Cale and unsigned but verbally committed post forward Darnell Brodie.
