Seton Hall sophomore guard Jaren Sina has decided he will transfer from the Pirates, the school announced Wednesday

Sina was ranked the No. 91 recruit in his class by ESPN and No. 121 by He chose the Pirates over Indiana and Northwestern.

In Seton Hall's loss to Georgetown on Tuesday, Sina scored nine points in 29 minutes. He has played in every game for the Pirates and started all but one.
