Right after news came out that it looks likely that Villanova will gain one transfer in Tony Chennault, news just broke that former Rice point guard Dylan Ennis has committed totransfer to Villanova as well. Ennis was also considering the Cincinnati Bearcats.
Dylan Ennis has committed to Nova over Cincinnati, his father told @SNYtv— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) April 24, 2012
Ennis was played a pretty solid role as a freshman for the Rice Owls last season, averaging 26.5 minutes per game while posting a line of 8.0 ppg, 4.2 rpg and 4.1 apg against 2.6 turnovers per game.
No word yet on how this may affect Tony Chennault's impending decision, but for now it looks like Villanova will be getting some help in the backcourt after the early departures of Maalik Wayns and Dominic Cheek.
