The saga is over.

Villanova point guard Jahvon Quinerly will be transferring from the program.

On Wednesday morning, it was announced that he will be placing his name into the transfer portal later this week.

“We had a very candid meeting and Jahvon has decided to transfer to another program,” stated Villanova head coach Jay Wright in an official press release. “We’ll miss Jahvon. He’s been an outstanding teammate and was an integral part of our success last season. We wish him the best as he approaches the next step in his basketball career.”

Quinerly arrived as a five-star recruit coming out Hudson Catholic (N.J.), where he was a McDonald’s All-American.

As a freshman, he appeared in 25 games for the Wildcats this past season, averaging 9.1 minutes and 3.2 points per game.

There was plenty of drama and speculation in regards to Quinerly this season, but his highlight performance came in an 81-58 victory over Connecticut on Dec. 22, where he finished with 10 points along with four assists in 25 minutes of action.

With Quinerly leaving, that leaves rising junior Collin Gillespie as the only Villanova Wildcats player with point guard experience. Villanova does bring in guards Bryan Antoine and Justin Moore this fall.
