Delante Jones becomes latest transfer to commit to Seattle University

Former American University guard Delante Jones announced he was transferring to Seattle University on Saturday, becoming the fifth player to commit to the Redhawks this off-season.

SEATTLE, Wash. — The off-season following the 2016-17 season has seen a number of programs leave their mark on the transfer market.

Then, there’s the Nevada Wolfpack, who are big players in terms of transfers year in and year out. Eric Musselman has done a tremendous job making Nevada a desirable place to play for both incoming recruits and transfer players from across the country.

However, there’s one team in particular who has added a slew of talented players this off-season, but don’t have the national attention to match.
