A Storm of the Past: Lindsey Transfers to Arkansas

Nurideen Lindsey will move on to Razorback Country.

Former St. John's guard, Nurideen Lindsey, who transferred from St. John's University on December 8th, has found a new home.

The Philadelphia-native has chosen to join the Arkansas Razorbacks program and continue his path towards the NBA under head coach Mike Anderson and his fast-paced style, reminiscent of their 40 Minutes of Hell years under Nolan Richardson.

In 9 games with the Red Storm, Lindsey averaged 12 points per game, along with 5 rebounds and 3 assists.

His decision to transfer came abruptly - 3 days after a tough road loss to the Detroit Titans. Assuming everything pans out with his academic eligibility, he should be available to Anderson's program in December of this year.

In his statement released by the University, Lindsey stated, "I came to St. Johns for a couple of reasons. One was to be close to my mom, whose health has been up and down due to some past experiences. The second was to play for Coach Lav. In both instances it has not worked out how I envisioned. I think Coach Lav is an amazing coach, and person. He could have taught me so much."

Lavin, while appearing on Courtside with Seth Davis, said of Lindsey,"I think he’s a tremendous prospect, has a bright future in basketball. We still communicate. As a matter of fact, we’ve been texting today and even yesterday about possible schools where he may end up landing."

"Again, it just wasn’t a good fit. The timing, a combination of factors. And I couldn’t guarantee when I would return this year. And understandably, he came to St. John’s to play for me. There were a combination of factors, and we really wish him well."

Lindsey's move came as a back breaker for a young St. John's team. But the team added Amir Garrett weeks later, to get back to seven scholarship players before Big East play started.
