St. John’s basketball guard Dylan Addae-Wusu is not going too far next season. 

There will be no strangers next season when the St. John’s basketball team runs into Dylan Addae-Wusu after the former Red Storm guard announced his commitment to Seton Hall last week.

Addae-Wusu was one of eight players from the Johnnies to enter the transfer portal and became the first to remain in the conference with his future plans.

St. John’s landed DePaul transfer David Jones, who reentered the transfer portal this season, as the first intra-league transfer last offseason.

The Our Savior Lutheran (NY) product had a career season with the Red Storm last season posting 9.3 points and 4.4 rebounds per game while also averaging 2.4 assists and 1.6 steals per game on 42.6-percent from the field and 36.4-percent from 3-point range.

Addae-Wusu has struggled against Seton Hall in his career, only averaging 5.2 points per contest in seven total games played against the Pirates while shooting 30.0-percent from the field and 17.6-percent from 3-point range.

“A Smooth Sea Never Made A Skillful Sailor,” Addae-Wusu said on Twitter.

Dylan Addae-Wusu was originally a 3-star recruit after committing to St. John’s in September 2019, joining his high school teammate Posh Alexander in the second recruiting class under head coach Mike Anderson.

Alexander also entered the transfer portal this offseason after three seasons with the Red Storm following the firing of Anderson.

Addae-Wusu averaged 6.7 points per game during his St. John’s career and the hope is he can help lead a depleted roster for head coach Shaheen Holloway.

Seton Hall has not formally announced the signing of Dylan Addae-Wusu.
