Kiss fills the scholarship vacated by one of the three transfer. At Quinnipiac, Kiss averaged 13 points and played 30 minutes a game. While not a knock em dead shooter, Kiss can hit the three. In a game early this season, he lit Seton Hall up for 19 points in a loss.
While there will be some delayed gratification for Scarlet Knight fans, as Kiss will have to sit out a year, this is a solid piece for the future of the program.
Steve Pikiell and the Scarlet Knights now have 2 open scholarships for next season. When talking to Adam Zagoria, Kiss said:
Rutgers beat Seton Hall, Rhode Island and Auburn for Kiss’s services.
