The news came a couple of hours after the Villanova-Kansas game and was shared via Twitter.
It is the end of a month-long search for Painter, since he initially announced his intent to transfer on Nov. 16. Painter played in two games this season and started in the Villanova Wildcats’ 100-77 season-opening win over Morgan State—his first bit of action since redshirting last season.
Painter arrived at Villanova for the 2016-17 season, after a successful career at Hershey (Pa.), where he finished off his high school days with a first-team all-state selection. He played 23 games as a freshman, with his best performance coming from the Big East Tournament quarterfinal game against St. John’s. He logged a career-high 10 points and six rebounds.
Per NCAA transfer rules, Painter must sit out until the second semester of the 2019-20 season. He will have two and a half years of eligibility left.
