Seton Hall pursuing Iowa transfer Trey Dickerson

While most would expect Seton Hall to be linked with a post forward transfer, reports have surfaced that they are pursuing point guard Trey Dickerson, who has transferred from Iowa’s program.

Trey Dickerson, by definition, is a journeyman of the college basketball landscape.

After starting his basketball career with New Heights (AAU) and Christ the King (N.Y.), which is local to his native Queens, Dickerson has been all over the country. In an attempt to get away from his hometown, he left New York for Montclair Prep under the advisement of TV analyst Kenny Smith. A small school in California, Montclair Prep would soon disband its athletics program, leaving Dickerson at Los Angeles’ Price High School.

After playing at Price, Dickerson attended God’s Academy in Texas, where he eventually committed to Murray State over Arkansas and Rutgers. Prior to the 2013-14 season and after enrolling in classes at Murray State, Dickerson decided that the Racers weren’t the right place for him. He subsequently went the junior college route at Williston State C.C. in North Dakota, where he was named a Third Team NJCAA All-American and received offers from the likes of Nebraska, Arkansas, Washington and others before pledging his three years of eligibility to Iowa.

Dickerson saw limited time off the bench at Iowa this season, peaking with 7 points and 4 assists against Longwood; the point guard played just 23 minutes in the Big Ten, most of which were late in blowouts, before transferring in February.

Somewhere in the midst of his long journey, Seton Hall had previously been linked with Dickerson, probably due to his local New Heights and Christ the King connections. It looks like he will be ineligible to play next season, and would then have two years of eligibility starting in 2016-17.

Seton Hall may receive a visit from him next month.

Sterling Gibbs would be gone from the program by time Dickerson is hypothetically eligible, and without any point guards entering in the 2015 class, he would be competing for time with Khadeen Carrington, Isaiah Whitehead (if he stays at Seton Hall past his sophomore year) and any incoming guards in the 2016 class.
