Rutgers Adds Bradley Transfer Omari Grier

-

Bradley shooting guard Omari Grier will graduate from the university and transfer to Rutgers, according to Jerry Carino of the Asbury Park Press. Grier also made an announcement on his personal Twitter page.

A native of Erial, New Jersey, the 6’4″, 180 pound Grier posted 7.9 points per game on 37.8 percent shooting last season.

In two seasons with the Braves, he shot 35.8 percent from the field and averaged 9.1 points while making 32 percent of his threes. Grier also spent his freshman season at Florida Atlantic, averaging 6.3 points in 14.2 minutes per game.

Grier will now head to a Rutgers team that stumbled to a 10-22 (2-16 Big Ten) mark in its first Big Ten season, is 22-43 in two years under coach Eddie Jordan and has not made the NCAA Tournament since 1991.

To be blunt, this program has certainly seen better days.

Hopefully, having a graduate transfer Grier on the team will add some semblance of leadership to the locker room and help get the Scarlet Knighs over the hump and on the path towards regular contention.
