The Seton Hall Pirates have reportedly landed Iona transfer guard Kyle Smyth, who averaged 5.5 points per game as a junior. The Boston College Eagles were a finalist to land the 6-foot-4 guard.

The Boston College Eagles lost a recruiting battle to the Seton Hall Pirates on Wednesday.

Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports reports that Iona guard Kyle Smyth chose Seton Hall over Boston College as his transfer destination.

The 6-foot-4 Smyth averaged 5.5 points as a junior with Iona last season, playing a significantly smaller role than he did as a sophomore when he scored 10.1 points per game. Smyth will not have to sit out a year and will be eligible in the upcoming season.

In four seasons with Iona (he received a red-shirt his freshman year after playing just 17 minutes), Smyth amassed 762 total points. His best season came as a sophomore when he averaged 10.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists.

Smyth played 20.8 minutes per game this past season as Iona captured the MAAC tournament and earned a trip to the NCAA tournament.
