Aggie Hoops Transfer Jordan Hall Returns to St. Joe’s

It’s a stunning gut punch from a crucial piece of our upcoming campaign

NCAA Basketball: Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

In a stunning twist, A&M transfer Jordan Hall announced his return to St. Joseph’s last night.

Hall initially announced his transfer on May 4th and entered his name for NBA Draft consideration soon after. He averaged 10.6 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 5.7 assists during an All-Rookie A10 campaign for St. Joesph’s and was seen as a crucial incoming member of Buzz Williams’ third campaign in charge of Texas A&M Men’s Basketball.

This (obviously) stings on multiple levels, but perhaps chief among them is this: St Joseph’s isn’t good. They’ve had success in the past and they have name recognition among non-P5 hoops programs, but their last two seasons absolutely stunk.

I won’t pretend to know why this happened, but the fact pattern is bleak: We were just abandoned for a program that’s gone 11-41 over the last two seasons; a program in a smaller conference that will almost surely provide less visibility for an admitted NBA hopeful.

It ain’t great.
