With continued speculation that Donte DiVincenzo may opt to stay in the NBA Draft, Villanova Wildcats coach Jay Wright is keep his options open on the grad transfer market. Just over a week ago we learned that Villanova had reached out to Cremo, and it seems like the pitch was received well.
ESPN’s Jeff Goodman is reporting that Albany transfer Joe Cremo will take a visit to Villanova this week.
Albany grad transfer Joe Cremo told ESPN that he will visit Villanova on Wednesday and Kansas this weekend. 6-4 guard averaged 17.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists this past season.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) April 30, 2018
Cremo is widely regarded as one of the best transfer options available, and is eligible to play right away next season. He’s a plus-shooter from the outside and should be able to step in and make an impact.
If the ‘Cats do feel as if they are going to lose DiVincenzo, Cremo makes a ton of sense as a seasoned veteran to bring into the rotation.
Cremo is also considering Texas and Creighton, having taken visits to both so far this spring.
