Pena to redshirt

Let'sGoNova has learned that freshman Antonio Pena will likely take a redshirt this season.

This is a surprising move considering Pena already prepped last year. This will make Pena 25 years old as a senior, assuming he doesn't leave early. Physically, Pena already appears ready to contribute. Perhaps Jay feels Pena just needs more time to mature mentally and learn Villanova basketball.

[update by Pete at 5:20 p.m.] Expect no official announcement on this anytime soon, as Pena could join the team this year if we suffer some injuries. As of right now, however, it is looking like he will indeed redshirt the year.
