Tony Chennault is looking to move closer to his family's home in Philadelphia. The Wake Forest sophomore point guard started every game in 2011-12, but will look to transfer before next season, and there is reason to believe he would be eligible for an NCAA hardship waiver to play immediately. He is considering five schools now, according to ZagsBlog.com, Villanova, St. Joe’s, Drexel, Seton Hall and Delaware, and will visit Villanova on April 19th.
Chennault has not yet set up any other visits, but he is expected to also visit St. Joes soon.
Villanova will also host Rice transfer Dylan Ennis this weekend. The rising-sophomore point guard would have three years of eligibility left, but does not have as strong of a case for an NCAA hardship waiver as Chennault and would likely have to sit out the 2012-13 season. Villanova needs experienced players to fill a predicted five open scholarships for the 2013-14 season, however, so locking in transfers like Ennis makes sense for the program right now.
In addition to Villanova, Ennis is also considering Cincinnati, Virginia Tech, Virginia and Boston College.
