Wright expects transfers

According to a candid article in the alternative campus newspaper the Villanova Times, Jay Wright thinks one or more of his current players could transfer before next season.

For those confused by the date attached to the article, the Villanova Times Web site seems to think that the date is currently February 21, 2007. Rest assured, this is a new article. One can only hope that the Villanova Times is more meticulous in its quote collection than its article dating.

In any event, while transfer rumors have been floating around all year, the quotes from Wright in this new article are by far his strongest revelation to date that some scholarships may soon be freed.

Said Wright:

I have a feeling somebody could [transfer]. We just have [too many people] in that freshman and sophomore class. And they're all good kids, and that's what I want them to know. I'd love to have all of them, but if all of them stay and you're that bunched up in your freshman, sophomore, junior class, certain guys aren't going to play.

They practice their butts off every day so I'm psyched about that, but one of them has got to [consider transferring]. Maybe even two, because they see what these kids [incoming recruits] are doing.

These blatantly honest statements from Wright could well be a signal to Tyreke Evans, the much-hyped 2008-09 superstar recruit, that a scholarship will soon open for him.

According to various sources close to Evans, Villanova leads in the Tyreke lottery. Evans is also said to be considering North Carolina, Louisville, Texas, and Connecticut.

Landing a recruit as good as Evans would totally change the constitution of Villanova's basketball program; in short, it would be the game-changing commitment that would cement the Wildcats as a first-tier destination for years to come.
