Jeff Goodman, the plugged-in college hoops reporter, noted that Villanova is a possible landing spot for Tulane transfer Caleb Daniels in his recent Ranking the Best Transfers article.
Daniels, a 6’4” shooting guard, averaged 16.9 points and 5.3 rebounds as a sophomore in 2019. The New Orleans native attended St. Augustine High School, the alma mater of a certain Villanova all-time great, and is noted to “shoot with NBA range”.
The Green Wave are seeing a handful of players looking to transfer as Tulane fired coach Mike Dunleavy Sr. at the end of the 2019 season. He is the father of Jay Wright coaching protege, Baker Dunleavy.
According to Goodman, Daniels is also considering Ohio State, Texas Tech, Baylor, Xavier, Georgia Tech, TCU, Iowa State, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Nevada, and Seton Hall.
Tulane’s 2019 leading scorer would need to sit out one year at his next school before having two years of eligibility remaining.
